S.P.A.R.K. or Solar Powered Auxiliary Relief Kiosk was the very first program of Thrive Projects, Inc. It is not a patented technology but rather, a constantly evolving integration of local parts that are readily accessible to communities around the globe.
The S.P.A.R.K. system can be sourced from many interchangeable parts, making it as diverse and resilient as the communities it is intended to serve. More importantly, Thrive treats the system not just as a piece of technology but as a platform to educate the members of underserved communities. By teaching communities to source, assemble, implement and maintain this system, Thrive has helped to develop new skillsets and unlock the imagination of its students.
Those who have been trained in S.P.A.R.K. System have gone on to become instructors for Thrive, gain employment with engineering companies, act as consultants on other energy systems and schools, and install infrastructure ranging from street lights to public charging stations in their communities.
