We have great news:
Our sister project “Solar Cookers for the School in Fiadanana” has been awarded the “Green Leaf” form GlobalGiving and invited to join their “Give a Little Green!” Challenge.
This Green Challenge is for projects by invitation only. Starting Saturday, April 4 and running through Tuesday, April 28, 2009 all donations up to $5,000 per individual made to our solar cooker project will receive an additional 50% match from GlobalGiving*.
In addition to matching funds, Zahana can compete for additional funding! The three projects receiving the greatest number of individual donations will receive extra prizes of $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000, respectively.
We need to act fast! Let’s get the matching funds as long as they last. With a minimum of $10 dollars becoming $15 with the click of the mouse, please consider donating now to our twin project in our original pilot site of Fiadanana Please tell your friends about this exciting opportunity provided by GlobalGiving in honor of the upcoming Earth Day.
Please pass this email on within your network.

Check out the website of the BlazingTubeSolarAppliance. We hope to test this innovative solar cooker in Fiadanana as part of our solar efforts as soon as possible.
* That means for every dollar you donate, Zahana will receive another $0.50. The match will be available from April 4 to April 28 only or until $25,000 in matching funds have been depleted. Even if matching funds are depleted, the challenge portion of the campaign will continue until April 28th.
