Dear Project Supporters-

Thank you for helping us provide solar lights to students in Liberia.  In Liberia, thousands of students have no choice at night but to use kerosene lanterns and open-flame candles - in order to be able to study or read. The smoke from these light sources is hazardous to their health. The flames are also a fire hazard.

Hawa is one of the students that was delighted to receive a solar light - thanks to your support!  Hawa is nine years old and loves to write and read.  She and her family live in a mud hut with no electricity, so they were so very thankful for the solar light.

Hawa and the other students who received solar lights are now able to study safely now. Thanks to your generosity, they now have safe solar light. You helped protect their health and we are deeply grateful for your support. Thanks to YOU, they are now reading safely and longer in the evenings - reading and planning towards a better future.

With great appreciation,
The Develop Africa Team
