In July of 2018, the SolarSPELL team launched a pilot phase in Fiji, equipping Peace Corps volunteers and local teachers, across four schools, with SolarSPELL digital libraries. The team returned in August 2019 for a training with volunteers and local teachers from 15 schools, as well as with Fijian librarians. The SolarSPELL research team traveled to Vanua Levu in Feb, 2020 to conduct an impact evaluation at schools that had received training on the SolarSPELL 6 months prior. The team has continued to be impressed by the level of importance Fijians place on addressing climate change, and how widespread the knowledge is of this problem. Fiji Peace Corps volunteers work in the Youth Development sector.
SolarSPELL (Solar Powered Educational Learning Library) is a student-centered initiative hosted at Arizona State University.
