This project is a collaboration between GlobalResolve and Amor Ministries to develop a community engagement center in Puerto Penasco, Mexico and led by Prof. Mike James
AMOR Ministries has provided opportunities for volunteers to work alongside the impoverished by building homes for shelter and safety for over 29 years in Puerto Penasco, Mexico (Rocky Point). In doing so, families are kept together and communities are built. In 2015, the city of Puerto Penasco donated a seven-acre parcel to AMOR for permanent development to continue building the community. In recent years, a shower/oasis facility, caretaker housing and an off grid power system has been designed, resourced and built with the help of GlobalResolve. GlobalResolve students gain valuable, practical real-life experience through collaborative and technical interaction at the project site.

SolarSPELL is a Solar Powered Educational Learning Library: a ruggedized, portable solar-powered digital library over an off-line WiFi hotspot, designed to simulate an online experience. Making use of open educational resources and ever-smaller and more efficient technology, SolarSPELL provides an all-in-one, self-powered plug-and-play kit, ready to be deployed with minimal training or maintenance required for start-up and continued operation. The goal is to provide relevant, localized educational content to resource-constrained locations around the world. The team includes university students, librarians, faculty and staff and involves partnering with locally-based development-minded organizations. The SolarSPELL team provides local training, in a train-the-trainers model, as well as support, post-implementation. The team also carries out evaluation and research to know whether our library is having a positive impact. SolarSPELL is an initiative led by Dr. Laura Hosman and housed in the GlobalResolve Program at Barrett, The Honors College-Arizona State University.
