$18,000 allows us to provide a rural African clinic with light and a solar powered refrigerator.
Light allows doctors to perform life-saving surgeries at night, and refrigerators allow proper storage for essential medicines and vaccines.
$18,000 can also provide electricity to a school.
With well-lit classrooms, students can do their homework at night, and adults can take continuing education courses. Electricity allows schools to provide access to radios and computers, giving their pupils access to the outside world for the first time.
