When you’re traveling on your first SonLight Power mission trip, you see things through a fresh lens.
That’s particularly true for Sarah Topp, who literally saw the vivid impact of light through a camera lens on a recent SonLight Power mission trip to Honduras.
Sarah, a video production manager with Rebel Pilgrim,
documented how your support and the service of SonLight Power trip participants continue to equip vulnerable children, families and communities with life-changing hope and solar power.
“It was a week I will never forget,” Sarah said recalling the late November trip into the Honduran countryside to the village of Yamaranguila, more than an hour’s off-road drive away from the end of the electrical grid. “The people, especially the kids, were so excited to see us.”
While the SonLight Power mission team installed pole-mounted solar power systems at three schools in the region, Sarah was busy recording moments of impact for a series of short videos – one of which was just released on the SonLight Power YouTube channel
. Through her lens, Sarah watched as sustainable electricity from solar power was introduced for the first time ever to hundreds of children and their families.
“Sarah and the team witnessed firsthand why the SonLight Power mission has never been more relevant than now in places like Honduras,” noted Kevin Sasson, SonLight Power executive director.
