Students from the International School of Tanyanika donated 30 solar lanterns to Pwani Primary School in Bahari beach on May 3rd, 2012.  The donation was the result of months of hard work fundraising money for the project.

The students sold books “Write for Light” hosted “solar cafe’s” and sold raffle tickets.

ARTI Energy donated a Firefly, PowaPack Junior 2.5w and PowaPack 5w on behalf of Anju (Patankar) Bassam, from Pune, India who made a 250 USD donation to help support students who cannot afford a light to study at night.  The students will be raffling off the to raise even more money to help brighten up more students lives.

The IST students travelled to Pwani School to hand over the lights as well as to help train the students on how to use them properly.  As another gesture of good will they also donated some books for the school library.

The whole ARTI team is proud to have been part of this effort and look forward to doing it again.
