Dear Halt Poverty Family,

Thank you for your generous contribution to contribute to achieving inclusive tourism for better livelihoods by providing solar lamps to Isalo rural community. October 26th of this year, GG disbursed $137.82 for the project #47236 “Solar Lamps for People Living in the Last Mile”. These funds:

  • Reach 5 end-users (the capacity of one product is 3,650 kwh/year the amount of potential clean energy generated over the time of a product (approx. 3 years).
  • Save families about 10,000MGA /month, households cost savings from shifts spending on fuel, candles (no operating cost = free sunlight)
  • Give children more hours for evening reading
  • Give back precious time for family to spend time together
  • Improve personal safety and security at nighttime
  • Reduce incidence of fires that result from kerosene lamps tipping over
  • Decrease CO2 emissions and less pollution exposure for end-users

Through your generosity through the years, together we have contributed to achieve inclusive tourism for better livelihoods of community members. We are joining efforts with the regional tourism board of Ihorombe to ensure basic human rights are met for our beneficiaries. Solar lanterns can positively affect a family's situation by using a high side light as desk lamps or during nocturnal camping within the national park. When you give the gift of clean energy you also give precious time for family to spend time together. You have left a wonderful legacy.

We are grateful for all you have done and pledge our best efforts in continuing this service. Please accept our warmest heartfelt thanks. To respected family donor, we are sending you good holiday wishes. Our deepest gratitude to you for choosing Halt Poverty community.

A joy to recognize,

Halt Poverty Team

Hello lovelies,

We would like to take a moment to let you know how much we appreciate your kindness and support. May 28th of this year, GG disbursed $678 for the project 47236. Solar Lamps for 1000 People Living in the Last Mile. So-far 410 end users are benefiting from the solar lamp’s distribution project.

In its global spread the pandemic has disrupted the functioning of many social life including those of our members and beneficiaries. Hence one of the reasons for us to be slow in distribution and collecting data within our sites. We thank you for making 2021 easier to navigate together. We are tremendously blessed to share our journey with you. When you give the gift of clean energy you give back precious time for family to spend time together. In response to our survey, one family shared the following outcomes:

Outcomes: Positive environmental outcomes. Less pollution exposure. Cost savings

Indicators: Household cost savings resulting from shifts in spending on fuel, candles. One potential benefit is that solar lamps improve personal safety and security at nighttime, in terms of the number of incidences of petty crime

Means of verification: Solar lamps have no operating cost (i.e., free sunlight)

Risks and assumptions: An assumption is that increased hours of lighting enable children to study more hours in the evening and thus improve learning outcomes. There is anecdotal evidence of educational benefits accruing from solar lanterns, but the evidence tends to be difficult to use because there is limited data on the long-term relationship between fuel replacement, access to lighting, and educational outcomes

We simply could not do this without YOU: donors, GG amazing staff and partners. Thank you for constantly inspiring us to make the world a better place. We are grateful “happy” to have you on board! We are grateful “happy” to have you on board! Misaotra betsaka! Merci beaucoup!

Sending love,

Halt Poverty Team

Distribution 2. 12 Households benefited sent June 2020

Distribution 3. 12 Households benefited sent July 2020

Distribution 4. On the way! We have received another model of lamps! 

Your precious donation is shining a light on 34 households and 170 end users. We rely on donations like yours to ensure that even the most remote communities get access to clean energy. Most Malagasy households use kerosene lamps and candles which are the source of indoor pollution and fire.

We make sure your donation achieves the greatest impact, especially during this unprecedented pandemic. We hope you enjoy learning about our work and continue to stay engaged with our team. Stay safe!

Warm regards,

Halt Poverty
