Our recent Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has officially come to close. I am so proud to say we raised nearly $7,000 to help solarize a much-needed radio station in the Terat Village of Maasailand, Tanzania. With the help of donations through and by Solar Energy International, additional funds have put the campaign over $10,000 raised.
This is a personal goal of mine to see this project of helping my good friend Lukas Kariongi help his village communicate with other villages throughout the Simanjiro District to fruition. Each and every dollar contributed will make that happen. I am so thankful.
Lukas is the Founder and Managing Director of the Rural Community Support Organization (RUCOSUO), a grassroots NGO focused on vocational solar training and community development. This non-profit charitable organization is focused on solar projects, and in Maasailand we plan to solar power the radio station, several secondary schools, and a solar training center. We are just getting started.
