Belgium (Lier / Antwerp), Friday 24th June 2022 - Sanel NV. (Panasonic Officlal Benelux Distributor) organised an Energy Day at their Training & Experience Centre with the collaboration of a Belgian School "GBS 'T Kroontje Massenhoven", Solarbuddy, Diplomatic World Magazine and Diplomatic World Institute to educate kids of 8-10 years "What Is Energy?" 

Meanwhile to create the awareness that other kids worldwide are facing with energy poverty and not having proper light to study and read books.

As quoted by the former UN Secretary-General Bank Ki Moon "789 Million people worldwide live-in extreme energy poverty and condemns billions of ill health, unfilled futures and repeated cycles of poverty"...

... and Solarbuddy can change the future of those kids through this brilliant solar + light device named Solarbuddy.

Who is Solarbuddy?  - In 2011, inventor and social impact entrepreneur Simon Doble read an article in Time magazine that opened his eyes to the harsh reality of the billions of people who live without safe and reliable lighting. A humanitarian at heart Simon felt inspired to use his skills to create a solution that would improve their lives.

The result was a renewable energy-powered light that became a solution in refugee camps across the world. But through finding one solution, he soon realised the enormity of energy poverty, and set about raising global awareness and designing solar light solutions for the most at risk communities. And in May 2016, SolarBuddy was launched.
