Solar D-Light helps Edward study at night
Solar D-Light helps Edward study at night

How impactful are your donations!  Do they really mean a lot to the beneficiaries?  For Edward, the answer is "Yes, YOUR donations mean a lot".  Here's some more about why this is so. 
  
Edward attends the United Mission Community Primary School. He is in class six. He is preparing to take the National Primary School Examination.  Edward was chosen as the worthy beneficiary of a Solar D.Light S 300 because he has been coming First place in class since he was in class two.  He lives with his grandparent who cannot afford to buy a kerosene lantern for him to study his notes at night.   He is very hard working. When he grows he will like to be a lawyer.  The parents are so grateful to you for considering their son worthy to receive the light you sent.
  
The light that we sent - see photo - is so much better than the local alternative - a kerosene lamp.  Kerosene lamps only provide a little light - so you have to sit very close to them.  Children study under the toxic fumes which cause headaches.  Besides this, the poor lighting is a strain to the eyes and long term is detrimental to vision. Furthermore, fires resulting from accidents with these lanterns (fuel spillage, lamps leaking, falling etc.) have caused destruction and loss of life and property.  The hazards of kerosene lanterns are further discussed in the linked articles.
 
Thanks to YOU, the hazards of studying with kerosene lanterns are no longer a concern for Edward.  Through your gift, you have provided health, safety and educational progress.  This is priceless!
 
Can you join us in bringing health, safety and educational progress to many more children?  We would love to provide this to hundreds of children in the community.  Here's how you can help:

1.  Donate $50 - which will provide one Solar Light - D.Light S 300

Or

2.  Purchase a D.Light S 300 solar light from the manufacturer and ship this directly to us.  Our shipping address is available here.  Feel free to email us directly with any questions at info - at - developafrica.org.
  
Thanks so much for joining us in spreading health, safety and educational progress!
