The staff of AIM Proximity, is spreading Christmas cheer in a small Samoan community, by providing them with something in high demand – free, renewable lighting.
The village of Apolima Tai, on the tiny island of Apolima is beautiful, friendly and truly off the grid. Ever since the tsunami of 2009, the people of Samoa have been in a rebuilding phase and electricity is a precious commodity.
AIM Proximity is taking the season of giving seriously in order to brighten up Apolima. They are sending a solar-powered lamp to each of their clients and suppliers and, for every lamp they send locally, they are sending another to the tiny island.
The lamps are made from durable plastic and can be left in the sun by day to power up. You can watch a video and learn about how AIM Proximity is making a difference to the lives of one Samoan village at
