It was celebration all over when one of our members Mrs. Ruth Elineema Lukwaro was selected to represent our organization at Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) at Washington Fellowship, 2014.

Ruth's strength was on bridging our partners with the Tanzanian grass-root community. In particularly, our lantern project with our USA partner, GlobalGiving, was highly appreciated. More updates are available on our website www.gongalimodel.com.

We highly appreciate all of you who made this miracle a reality. At the beginning we could not imagine how far will this project take us to. THANKS for connecting us with more networks in USA through the YALI fellowship.

We will continue to appreaciate your constant support for this very important project that aims to provide solar lantern to EVERY Tanzanian school child.

Your generous support will help us spread quickly to other villages of Tanzania - there are more than 1,200 villages and we only served 2 villages. At present we are limited only to 2 villages due to the financial constraints, as we demonstrated in our project proposal.

THANKS, ONCE MORE, FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT!

Dear our partners, GlobalGiving, Donors, Supporters, and ALL interested parties

WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!

This month we are reporting our exciting development. We already sold out ALL solar lanterns you purchased for us with your first $5,000 donation. As we promised, we were able to sell the solar lanterns to kids at discount price.....below the market price. The money we collected has now become a seed capital/revolving fund. The lanterns were sold out through local entrepreneurs such as those at the attached picture who are the students of the University of Arusha. We are so proud of their enthusiasm which is now becoming a MODEL for other students to follow. With the seed capital we collected, we are now able to provide interest-free loans for solar lanterns business to those local entrepreneurs.

Your future support will help us increase our seed capital and be able to provide more and bigger loans to our hard-working local entrepreneurs WHILE at the same time PROVIDING DESPERATELY NEEDED SOLAR LANTERNS TO OUR KIDS!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR RELENTLESS SUPPORT!

ASANTENI SANA!

It was like a dream, and you will agree why? Just imagine, when E3Empower social enterprise (a company from USA) saw our initiative on GlobalGiving they took it VERY SERIOUSLY! As I am writting to you now, I am glad to let you know that the E3Empower Team visited Tanzania last week to strengthen our effort to ensure that MANY Tanzanian kids get solar lanterns. Truly, our dream is becoming a reality and WE WILL ALWAYS CHERISH YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION!

You enabled us to start the fire! I hope this fire will "GROW BIG" and will get supporters from various places around the world. I strongly believe that your passion will EXPLODE as you see the pictures of Tanzanian kids holding the solar lanterns that you PAID FOR!........of course they also contributed BUT they could not afford the FULL price, as it is in the market. See the picture that shows how their "DETAILED" records are kept very carefully!

Some University students also were highly motivated to join the effort of TAHUDE Foundation. They are now passionate to take the solar lanterns initiative to their home villages.

One more breaking news is that we have now opened an EMPOWER COMMUNITY CENTER in one of the villages in Tanzania called GONGALI. This is now our distribution point for Solar Lanterns and other similar initiatives.

In short I am just saying THANK YOU SO MUCH for making our dream a reality.

We are now halfway our plan of raising USD 10,000 that can touch the lives of 1,000 school children. With the lacking amount, about USD 4,700, we will accomplish our first mission of distributing "discounted price" solar lanterns to 1000 Tanzanian school children WITHIN the first quarter of this year, 2014. Please continue to give us your generous support and, this time, please kindly involve your MANY friends!

WELCOME TO TANZANIA and witness the MIRACLES of the lives you blessed, as E3Empower Team did. OUR GRATITUDE TO GLOBALGIVING for providing us with GLOBAL FRIENDS!

GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY!
