Light the Night-Illuminate Liberia!

Donations of about $8,500 from you, our supporters on GlobalGiving allowed VIP, Inc. to purchase 156 solar lanterns for five villages in rural Liberia. The 560 lumens bright lanterns with mobile phone chargers will be distributed to 156 families when they arrive in Liberia. Your generous donation has helped Village Improvement Project to illuminate the lives of Liberian families by allowing them to safely enjoy their homes into the night. VIP, Inc.’s solar lantern project has now grown from providing clean and renewable solar energy for six families to 193 families in five rural villages in Liberia. In addition, through the generous grant support of GlobalGiving, VIP is undertaking a feedback program to learn from recipients how the lights are impacting their lives. VIP is making available a mobile phone to a village liaison which will be used to conduct short surveys and remain in constant contact with residents of all villages with lanterns to learn about both positive and negative changes so that we can work with them to problem solve and figure out what other kinds of development initiatives they would want. This feedback loop will provide greater opportunity for the voices of those we are seeking to help to be heard about what they want or need rather than deciding for them.
