Showing villagers the Solar Light 1
TanzSolar is very pleased to announce that we have passed the “5000” solar light milestone!
In the forth quarter 2010 TanzSolar continued with our scheduled trips to the village markets. We set up our booth at the monthly markets with loud speakers and 3 staff members. In this quarter we exhibited at the markets in the villages of; Bitaraguru, Isenye, Kiabakari, Kiagata, Kirumi, Kisaka , Majimoto, Masinki, Mugeta, Mugumu, Mwibagi and Saragana.
Most of our time is spent explaining the solar electric lights and solar panels. Customer satisfaction with the product is high and we often get repeat customers, wanting a second or third light. We do encounter customers who have a battery failure or other problem from time to time, and we repair or replace their lights.
Thanks to your donations,TanzSolar distributed 785 solar lights in Q4 2010!
We have been fortunate to enjoy financial support from the Rural Energy Agency for TanzSolar’s marketing efforts in the Mara Region. We have produced a booklet in Kiswahili about solar power in comic book format. We will begin distributing these in the villages as well.
Thank you for your ongoing support for clean affordable light in rural Tanzania!
Did you know that March 16 is Bonus Day – where Global Giving will supplement donations by an additional 30%. (Matching is applied at 30% up to $1,000 per donor per project.) If you can afford to make a donation it will help us greatly!
