Solar for Life - Tanzania

A solar light can transform the life of a poor family in rural Tanzania - and can enable school children to study at night. Encouragement for village children to study for entrance to secondary school is a key objective of this project.

In the Ruaha Diocese of Tanzania 90% of the rural population do not have access to electricity. It is dark 11-12 hours of the day every day of the year. 50% of the population are under the age of 20.

Rural students without access to light for study are severely disadvantaged. Giving them light helps to achieve the marks they need to continue with their education.

This project is overseen by former CMS missionary Fiona Oates who founded the Watu na Nuru ("Light for the People") solar project for the Diocese.
