Dear supporters,

We just received very good news - for you, for the SODIS Foundation and for the project you helped funding:

Thanks to a substantial corporate donation last week, we reached our fundraising target ahead of time. This means that the project is fully funded. Throughout the project, we provided training on safe drinking water, improved hygiene and sanitation to more than 85,000 school kids in 231 schools in Bolivia.

We actually exceeded our fundraising target by $3,410. This amount now will be used in our new project, which is already online and which you can support as well: If you want to follow our activities, please subscribe to the updates of this project or make a donation. In this new project, we will be improving water and sanitation services of more than 9500 children in 40 schools in Tiquipaya (Bolivia).

Furthermore, we also would like to point out to a very special opportunity: thanks to support of the Rockefeller Foundation and, our project to develop a SODIS indicator will continue. Donations to our project will be matched by 200% - that's triplicating the amount you donate! This mechanism will only last until February 29 and is valid for donations of up to $1,000. For example, if you donate $50, the project will actually receive $150, which will cover the costs of a training workshop and focus group discussion in order to further improve the indicator design we are working with. Please make use of this unique opportunity and pass on the word to others. You can read more about this initiative on this blog or in this article.

Thank you again for your support throughout the project.

Best regards,
Matthias Saladin
