This quarter we have a breaking news about the award given to our Director, Dr. Hilonga. But first please share our excitement for the new partnership established for expanding our solar lantern project in collaboration with an organization called "Made With Hope" - a UK Charity. We were approached by Eleanor Riley who is the Founder of Made With Hope. To kick off our partnership, Made With Hope has purchased 50 Solar Lanterns that will be given to schools in Arusha, particularly CHETI Schools. With this kind of very generous organizations we will be able to reach more and more people in need of our service.

THANKS to all our supporters through GlobalGiving who sustain our activities and gave us credibility to be trusted and engage in further partnership with other reputable organizations.
