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.

Solar-Schools in Tanzania Project Report Q1 2012

Rural school.

TanzSolar’s second Global Giving project; Solar Electricity for an African School, is 8% funded with $11,135 left to go.   To our 17 donors, we thank you for getting this project off to a good start.  We are looking forward to electrifying our first Secondary School in the Musoma Rural District. 

Only a small percentage of the youth of Tanzania get to go to secondary school, about 6%.  These students are motivated and are doing their best to get an education, however the infrastructure is not supporting them or their teachers.  As we continue with this projects, and more like it to follow, we expect to show how much of an impact having electricity and internet access can make on the education of these young women and men.  Your support will make it happen.  Thank you, and please tell your friends about this project.  We are only $11,135 away from our first solar-electric secondary school.
