Solar Lamps for 2600 Students in Sundarbans, India

Three Lamps for Two Offer this June 12th!

Dear Supporters,

You have helped to change the lives of so many young people in the Sundarbans. So many like Kakoli, Hosonara, Pulak and Sheikh Golam who along with their families have a better life today. It is amazing how a solar lamp has transformed lives! Today each student who has been given a solar lamp studies by its steady, powerful light, the family saves over 4% of their annual income from not having to buy kerosene and the fragile ecosystem of the Sundarbans experiences lower carbon emission.

A wonderful opportunity comes your way on Bonus Day, June 12, 2013 when for every two solar lamps you donate, GlobalGiving will provide funds for one! Every donation will be matched at 50%.

Donate between 9 am EDT to 11.59 pm EDT on June 12th!

Thank you for transforming lives in the Sundarbans.
