Spring is here in New England, and the days are getting longer but in Malawi it still gets dark at 6pm.
With many thanks to a generous donor, we will be sending 350 lights to the women in Malawi in the next few weeks. Women in one of our client groups will have the opportunity to start their own businesses selling these lights and begin the climb out of poverty. We want to be able to keep supplying them with these lights so they may have sustainable livelihoods for years to come. To do that, we continue to need your support, and the support of your friends and colleagues.
Here is a way you can help today, without having to spend a dime - though we are always willing to take any dimes you want to send our way!
MLF USA is entered for a mini-grant award. All we need are VOTES to win so please take a minute and help our Solar Entrepreneurs Light up the Night!
Here's what to do:
We need to garner as many votes as we can by 12 noon on April 17, 2012, so please pass this message along.
If we receive the mini-grant, 250 more families will have a safe, renewable source of power to Light up their Nights
