Thanks to the tireless efforts of the good folks at Santa Barbara based Unite-To-Light, we’ve been empowered to help put game-changing solar lights in the hands of hundreds starting with NPR’s KCLU radio telethon this April.
We’re very excited about doing our small part in support of this program’s actions, and look forward to contributing to projects like the following:
1) Children in seven different high schools school near Hluhluwe, South have so far received 700 lights, but still need many more to help the over 14,000 students there.
A recent report from Lindi (Principal of Makhasa High School) tells that she received 58 lights for her 58 senior learners. They took their Matric exams and improved scores from 59% to 81% and she says it was due to the fact that they could use the lights to read and study at night.
2) In Camaroon, Unite-To Light is looking to start a small business selling the solar lights that are provided as an initial investment. Proceeds from sales of these intinial lights would then be used topurchase more lights.
3) In Ghana, a K-9 school of 400 in a small village called Kodeikrom will be visited by a Unite-To-Light team this summer that will hand-deliver solar lights for all.
