Solar power to illuminate 350 villagers in Malawi

Final Report on Solar Light project

Holiday Greetings,

As we reflect on our wonderful holiday season,  I wanted to send out a final report on the Solar Light Project.

Your support, along with other friends of MLF USA, has enabled more than 500 families to read at night in rural Malawi. Mothers can sew, and chidren can do homework. They no longer have to worry about a candle falling over or the fumes from a kerosene lamp making them feel ill. The women to whom I have given solar lights, and talked with, are delighted with the ability of a small switch to produce so much power.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support of this project.

I hope you'll continue to support MLF USA during this holiday season as we introduce our new project in the Liwonde region of Malawi.

More poor women than ever are looking to the MicroLoan Foundation for help.

Together we can give them a hand-up, not a hand out





About Project Reports

Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.

If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.


Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
