The Speed of Light is a digital giving platform recently developed by SolarAid. It’s a completely new way of giving: Only taking a minute to get involved and creating an interconnected community who each play a part in getting life-changing solar lights to Africa. The system is really still a prototype but we have still learnt so much. In this session we will share our learning so others can apply the same principles to their own projects.
