Dear Laura,

Sierra, Barrett, and Meg just finished distributing 7,000 solar lights with Energizer in South Africa, improving the lives of more than 20,000 people!  This was our largest distribution to date and we are happy to report that it went off very well.  

For our domestic education program- One Million Students is happy to announce that the solar curriculum is complete and ready to be taught in K-12 classrooms everywhere.  Please register here to be a part of this program.
