TanzSolar Wins Green Africa Award Q3 2012 Report

Green Africa Award
Green Africa Award

TanzSolar’s Global Giving project, Affordable Solar Light for 12,500 African Villagers, continues to subsidize the cost of solar lights for rural Tanzanian families.  Thousands of Tanzanians have already received subsidized solar lights through this program, thanks to your support. 

TanzSolar received a big honor in June from the Green Africa program.

The annual Green Africa Award for Business was awarded to TanzSolar (www.tanzsolar.org) for championing environmental change in Africa. TanzSolar received the Award for bringing clean, renewable solar energy and electric lighting to villagers in Tanzania. TanzSolar received the Green Business & Environmental Management Award, one of ten categories.

Since 2007 TanzSolar has been working in the rural, northern regions of Tanzania to bring clean, renewable solar energy and electric lighting to village homes, schools and medical facilities.  TanzSolar is a nonprofit Tanzania based company that has distributed over 7,000 subsidized solar-lighting systems.  Nonetheless millions of rural households and businesses remain without access to electricity, so this work is just beginning.

Please take a look at our school project; www.globalgiving.org/projects/solar-schools4africa/.   You will see some photos here of our first rural school installation.

The TanzSolar staff and the villagers of Rural Musoma thank you for your generous support.  Together we are changing the world.

TanzSolar’s project; Solar Electricity for an African School  , is just getting started, with $11,000 left to go.  We are looking forward to electrifying many secondary schools in Rural Tanzania, and are starting on our first installation this summer.  Equipment is ordered and we expect to have photos of our first electrified school on our website, www.tanzsolar.org, by August.  Please watch for them.  The students and teachers are very excited about getting electricity, lighting and the Internet!

Your donations make it possible.

Thank you from the 450 students and 6 teachers at the secondary school you are funding.

TanzSolar’s Global Giving project, Affordable Solar Light for 12500 African Villagers, continues to subsidize the cost of solar lights for rural Tanzanian families.  We have just $3,520 left to complete this project, only 6%! 

Your donations have paid for half of the cost of a solar-powered light for a village family.  The villagers themselves pay for the other half, which encourages them to value and care for these lights.  TanzSolar is headquartered in Musoma, a town in Northern Tanzania conveniently located to thousands of rural households.  We offer ongoing product support, battery replacements and equipment repairs at or below cost.  We produce educational literature and are working to introduce the populace to solar electricity and efficient electric lighting.  Together we are bringing knowledge and light to rural Africa.

In addition you might like to take a look at our school project; www.globalgiving.org/projects/solar-schools4africa/.  This project will fund the electrification of a rural secondary school in northern Tanzania.

Again we thank you for your generous support.  Your donations have changed the lives of this large, hard-working rural population in Tanzania, and they are deeply appreciated.
