TanzSolar’s project; Solar Electricity for an African School  , is just getting started, with $11,000 left to go.  We are looking forward to electrifying many secondary schools in Rural Tanzania, and are starting on our first installation this summer.  Equipment is ordered and we expect to have photos of our first electrified school on our website,, by August.  Please watch for them.  The students and teachers are very excited about getting electricity, lighting and the Internet!

Your donations make it possible.

Thank you from the 450 students and 6 teachers at the secondary school you are funding.
