Virunga Solar Power Project

The Virunga Lodge Solar Power project aims to provide access to electricity to local communities around Virunga Lodge. Electricity is the first step to improving the welfare of households, it is essential for a family to progress, to allow school-going children to read in the evening and for families to access information.

Volcanoes Safaris has partnered with BBOX in Rwanda, to supply solar panels to families around Virunga Lodge. Guests are invited to donate a solar panel to a family. A donation of $500 covers the cost of purchase, installation and 2 years of support for a solar panel from BBOX. Our first solar panel was donated in December 2020. Our target is to provide 75 families with solar panels by the end of 2021. Please help us achieve this goal.
