This quarter we did not receive significant support on solar lanterns but we continued to support pupils at Gongali Primary School in other ways. This time we conducted innovation competition in which there were 10 companies made my pupils from Kindergarten to standard two. Other pupils also brought their products (self-made toys) to be sold in those companies. Parents were invited to purchase those items and the NYATI (Buffalo) company became the winner by selling more. The program was so exciting and was aired on a big Television in the country, called StarTV as shown here:
These could be an innovative approach to encourage pupils to think big and become innovators who solve real challenges in the community. THANKS for your interest and relentless support for this young generation from my underserved community.
At personal level, I am sacrificing a lot for these lovely young people. This time I taught them Mathematics for FREE! I had to wake up every morning – to not interfere with their normal school time table.
Some of them still need solar lanterns, so I will continue to fundraise for them and also for scale-up of this project to other parts of Tanzania.
Please kindly let me know how you would like to be involved, with time – just write to my email firstname.lastname@example.org
This quarter we have an exciting news to share: we got a promise from the United Africa Coin to generously support our project with $5,000 to start with. The organization is impressed by our willingness to make impact in children’s lives as demonstrated in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybonXHMccaY
I am sure you will be interested to see how this new approach will bring significant difference to our project – because it may be easier for people to donate crypto currency than cash.
Meanwhile, your relentless support via the GlobalGiving platform is very valuable and we highly appreciate your continuous support. It is through your support that we are able to attract even those big sponsors like the United Africa Coin and many others.
We welcome your ideas and comments on how we can make this project a great success. Our main intention is to provide solar lantern to every child in all remote villages in Tanzania; though at present we are mainly in Arusha region. A donation of $5 is enough to provide a child with solar lantern that he/she can use for reading for more than 3 years.

This is what she had to say, “It gives me much pleasure and pride to introduce someone who I've been admiring from afar for a couple of years now. Mr. Askwar Hilonga is the genius college professor, scientist, innovator, and inventor of the Nanofilter filtration system. He's making off grid sustainability a tangible thing, and has already improved the lives of thousands. He is changing lives not only on the continent, but around the world. Please be sure to visit the links below to support Professor Hilonga. Hope you enjoy!

THANKS for your relentless support all the time. Our solar lantern project is surviving all this time (for about 9 years) – be assured that you have touched thousands of Tanzanian children through this project. We are determined to do even more, though at present it looks like many sponsors slowed down – it could be due to the economic effects of COVID-19. Nevertheless, we are excited to receive an email on potential partnership. I did not know that it might become a breakthrough – Crypto currency! We just got a partner (name reserved for now) who has a passion project that generates donations in crypto-currency for charities (they always convert this and provide the donations in regular currency to go to immediate good use). This partners says, “I would like to push this particular cause of yours and focus a big drive for it, something like a “charity of the month” in July – My clients are very much at the forefront of technology and would get behind this.’’
Please kindly join us to spread the word when this campaign starts – some people may opt to directly support us through GlobalGiving. But all in all, we will be so grateful to receive support in any form: conversional or crypto! THANKS IN ADVANCE!
This quarter I want to give you a brief update on the progress of our solar lantern project.
The project got a "visibility boost" through our other campaign on establishing water stations, called Thirst for Life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHL9OCyHODw.
I hope you will enjoy watching our video and see how we can amplify our voice about our solar lantern project along with the Thirst for Life Campaign (from Alexandria in Egypt to Cape Town in South Africa).
Our desperate need now is to get our word out - so we can invite many supporters for our campaign. We don't have a very competent IT Team or Social Media Experts to help us amplify our word. I was just looking to our Thirst for Life video today (16th Feb 2021) and found out there are only 20 views! How on earth can I fundraise $1,000 under such circumstances!/ THANKS to GlobalGiving (through you) for playing its part to help me and my team.
If you have a specific advice on how we can efficiently implement our Thirst for Life campaign please directly write to me: email@example.com. The campaign will touch lives of about 5,000,000 people across Africa - I am sure you will be proud that you also contributed to making this impact in your life time.
