CINCINNATI, OH – Slovin and Associates, a creditor’s rights law firm in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, has a long history of community involvement. Partners Randy Slovin and Brad Council have spent decades in the community helping those in need. This past November, Mr. Council and his wife took a trip to the Olancho region of Honduras where they helped install solar panels at three different remote schools in just a week.
“It was the most rewarding experience imaginable,” Mr. Council said. “We stayed in Juticalpa and would drive to these remote villages, usually three to four hours away. These regions typically don’t have power and most schools were small one-room schoolhouses where the children of local coffee farmers attend classes. Providing opportunities for furthering children’s education is important to our family and I couldn’t be more proud of the work we did supporting these communities.”
A Light for All
Mr. Council and his wife took this trip with SonLight Power, a faith based non-profit that specializes in the installation of solar power in remote areas. SonLight, based in Milford, Ohio, has spent many years connecting solar operations with communities across the globe. With over 85 partnerships established, SonLight has installed 510 kilowatts of solar panels in 19 countries.
To power the Honduras trip, SonLight partnered with the Thousand Hills Cowboy Church of Ethridge, Tennessee and Iglesia Cristiana Vida Abundante in Honduras.
During Mr. Council’s trip to Honduras, SonLight remained in close contact with the heads of the Olancho region to determine the schools that would receive solar panels. Mr. Council said that the schools equipped would now have solar panels and batteries that could provide them adequate light for nighttime activities and further schooling. With solar power on hand, schools were also provided with multimedia equipment like TVs and DVD players to further students’ education. Each school, in addition to the solar panels and multimedia equipment, also received many boxes of school supplies to help students in every way possible.
To see more from Mr. Council’s trip, SonLight created a slideshow video of the mission trip.
