Empowering South Africa’s children through energy relief

I&IFORYOU, founded and led by Iris Freericks and Ianthe Smulders, has at its core the aim to reach out and make a difference. Their latest project, proudly sponsored by The Sungrid Group (In2Brands), sees Iris and Ianthe travelling throughout South Africa, from Eastern Cape via Kwazulu Natal to Johannesburg.  And their intention?  To help the people of South Africa realise greater self-sufficiency through the use of solar power, and to educate on how this source of renewable energy can greatly improve the lives of millions.

With a focus on providing lighting and power to schools and crèches in energy poor communities, the I&IFORYOU team will share with impoverished areas throughout South Africa the benefits of both The Sungrid Group’s WakaWaka and Solsave Portable Power solutions.

“We aim to reach out to people worldwide (you) by bundling our combined efforts (I and I), and helping in places where we believe we can actually make a difference,” says Iris and Ianthe.  With over 600 million people in Africa, 12 million in South Africa alone, having no access to power, portable (solar) power offers Africa the opportunity to generate its own energy supply and in that, transform millions of lives.

“We are excited and honoured to be part of this journey,” says Ryan Steytler, Director, The Sungrid Group.  “We wish Iris and Ianthe a safe and successful trip as they live our ethos of ‘empowering Africa’.

The demand for portable (solar) power products continues unabated as we enter a new year. With no end to Eskom load shedding, the demand for alternative and viable energy solutions remains.  At the Sungrid Group (In2Brands), we are proud that the products available in our ‘Switch to Portable Solar Power’ range continue to provide South African consumers with a cost-effective, reliable and sustainable option.

Available online through either Takealot or Kalahari, in addition to selected Sportsman’s Warehouse outlets, the end of February will see the countrywide roll out of an extended product range (Ecoboxx 50, 90, 160DC and 160DC plus) across no fewer than 40 Makro stores.

“Portable (solar) power is the way forward,” says Ryan Steytler, Director, The Sungrid Group (In2Brands). “With no end to our country’s energy crisis, consumers everywhere are looking for a solution that will put the power back in their own hands, allowing for more sustainable and productive lives across both business and recreational.”
