Dear Supporter, 

We are pleased to let you know that 276 students in the islands of K-Plot and Maipith in the Sundarbans were provided with solar lamps in March 2013.

On 23 March 76 students on K-Plot island were handed over the solar lamps at a ceremony organized by a local organization that is assisting with this endeavor. On 24 March 200 solar lamps were handed over to students on Maipith Island at a ceremony organized by Baikunthapur Tarun Sangha, our project partner. All the students who received the lamps have been inducted into ASED’s youth nature leadership program, the Green Rhinos Program.

The joy the students felt can be seen in the photograph!

We thank you for your continued support.

With warm regards,
