Solar Light Appeal

In February 2021, we launched an appeal to provide solar light systems to children living in homes without an electricity supply.


Hundreds of families in Moshi Town and its surrounding villages live in small, overcrowded homes with no electricity or water supply.

Without any light after sunset, school children are unable to study or do their homework. And without an education, they are destined to a life of poverty.

To respond to the crisis, we launched an appeal to install a solar light system (comprising of 3 bulbs, a battery pack with a mobile phone charging port and a solar panel) in 250 homes. The Beta Charitable Trust generously offered to match every donation.

Such was the success of the appeal that we doubled our target and distributed 500 solar light systems!
