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!

Thirst For Life Campaign Team - Tanzania
Thirst For Life Campaign Team - Tanzania

Greetings from Tanzania

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: hilonga@gmail.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.

GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY!

Askwar Hilonga - Project Director

Exhibition in Tanzania - Aug 2020
Exhibition in Tanzania - Aug 2020

This quarter we are so humbled to just say "THANKS for standing with us "in season and out of season"".

Besides COVID-19 challenge, we are so grateful that most of our supporters continued to generously support us - though they themselves might have been challenged by COVID-19. That's a great sacrificial spirit and we will always respect and cherish your generosity.

The most important activity we accomplished this quarter is successful participation in the exhibition event that happens every year in August. As you can see in the photo, we displayed all our products including the Solar Lanterns. Other products include Nanofilter for households and for schools / institutions, Biogas and organic fertilizer, and the Inspire and Empower Centre.

We had more than 1,000 visiting our booth and we recorded their names for future follow-ups.

Last but not least: please kindly join our 10 years celebration on 1 - 5 Dec 2020. We will show-case our success stories and the impact to our community. Also we will release our great plan to scale-up to 20 different African countries in 2021. It looks like an "impossible dream" - that is why you need to witness by yourself.

Please kindly click this link and join us for the GREAT CELEBRATION on 3rd Dec 2020: http://evite.me/4A6mY5mjd9

 We will come back with further details about this GREAT CELEBRATION for our 10 Years Mission & Vision. For now please keep the date: 3rd Dec 2020 - and share the link with others.

THANKS again for being very kind to us, even amidst COVID-19.

THANKS to The Girls Foundation of Tanzania
THANKS to The Girls Foundation of Tanzania

“A friend in need is a friend indeed”! We are so GRATEFUL to the The Girls Foundation of Tanzania (www.girlsfoundationoftanzania.org) for providing our whole team with masks to protect against COVID-19. We continue to extend our gratitude to the GlobalGiving and its partners – including the sponsors / supporters like you. Our track record, through your support, has become a basis for us to apply for expansion projects and further training. This quarter we just submitted a new proposal to International Labour Organization (ILO) to train local entrepreneurs to be involved in various products we are producing, including the Solar Lantern.

Here is the track record we made as the basis for the ILO Project:

1. Training of 1,000 local entrepreneurs, mostly youth and young ladies to operate Nanofilter water stations – funded by Human Development Innovation Fund (HDIF)/UKAid (2016-2019): GBP 350,000.

2. The training of 24 Zambian Entrepreneurs

The entrepreneurs came to Tanzania and were trained under the sponsorship of Southern Africa Innovation Support Program (SAIS): 170,000 Euros. Please kindly consider the YouTube Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCfZZfvXhLU

3. Training for 400 Tanzanians - sponsored by Tanzania Education Authority under the program sponsored by the World Bank called "Skills Development Fund" (SDF). The training solves the challenge of unemployment and failure to utilize locally available resources. The government of Tanzania provided Tsh.131,000,000 to to conduct this training.

4. Future STEM Business Leaders Training

This is training for young people - sponsored by the Institute of Physics (IOP), UK. Here is the testimony by some of the participants: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_AigAVLSnk

5. The Royal Academy of Engineering, United Kingdom: Sends intern students from UK Universities to work with us in Tanzania. The interns stay at the Inspire and Empower Centre in Tanzania.

 

Among others, the objectives of the ILO training are:

1. To empower 100 young people every 3 months with much needed skills in the real work environment

2. To enable the trainees earn a “salary” (as normal employees) of at least Tsh.200,000 per month during their work-based practical training

Please kindly let us know how you would like to be involved now or in future. We are open-minded!

Solar Lantern CEO, Ruth- Receives Award for SDGs

This quarter we are so excited to report our 17th award. This time it was through our CEO, Mrs Ruth Elineema Lukwaro, who went to Ghana and awarded by the President of Ghana for our significant contribution to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The award is named: Africa Innovates for SDGs. The award is based on our contribution to solving our community challenges along with the globally agreed goals (SDGs). But our success came through your generous support. We are so grateful to you and all our partners who gave us a beautiful beginning of this interesting journey of Solar Lantern Initiative and we see a brighter future. Please kindly let us know if you would like to be involved in a certain way – eg. if you want to support us to enter another country or just continue to scale-up within Tanzania. You may even just support a school child get his/her solar lantern at a price of USD 10. You may also support a whole school of about 400 pupils at USD 4,000. We will send you the name of the child you supported or a school, location / GPS, photos, etc. Then you can drop-by / visit whenever you come to Africa or request your friends to visit us whenever they come to Africa.

We are always grateful for your RELENTLESS SUPPORT.

HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!
