Green Africa Award
TanzSolar’s Global Giving project, Affordable Solar Light for 12,500 African Villagers, continues to subsidize the cost of solar lights for rural Tanzanian families. Thousands of Tanzanians have already received subsidized solar lights through this program, thanks to your support.
TanzSolar received a big honor in June from the Green Africa program.
The annual Green Africa Award for Business was awarded to TanzSolar (www.tanzsolar.org) for championing environmental change in Africa. TanzSolar received the Award for bringing clean, renewable solar energy and electric lighting to villagers in Tanzania. TanzSolar received the Green Business & Environmental Management Award, one of ten categories.
Since 2007 TanzSolar has been working in the rural, northern regions of Tanzania to bring clean, renewable solar energy and electric lighting to village homes, schools and medical facilities. TanzSolar is a nonprofit Tanzania based company that has distributed over 7,000 subsidized solar-lighting systems. Nonetheless millions of rural households and businesses remain without access to electricity, so this work is just beginning.
Please take a look at our school project; www.globalgiving.org/projects/solar-schools4africa/. You will see some photos here of our first rural school installation.
The TanzSolar staff and the villagers of Rural Musoma thank you for your generous support. Together we are changing the world.
