Special Notice!

On Wednesday, October 9th beginning at 12:01 am EDT, for 24 hours, GlobalGiving is providing a Bonus Day!  Your contribution will be matched at 30% by Global Giving, up to the first $25,000 claimed.  Please take advantage of this added gift by donating, online, on October 9.  In the morning, if possible!

Our thanks to you all who have made these projects possible and to Global Giving for their ongoing efforts to support TanzSolar and other grassroots nonprofit organizations around the world.  We work very hard to provide the most impact for your dollars.

TanzSolar continues to provide maintenance for the more than 7,000 solar lighting systems we have distributed in the Lake Zone region.  We are currently saving for our next shipment of lighting systems, and hope to be able to purchase these kits before the end of the year to begin distribution in December.

Don’t forget!  October 9, in the morning as early as possible, make a donation!  Every donation, large or small, helps us to make a significant, long-term improvement in the lives of rural families without access to electric power.

Thank you.
