1. To build the capacity of rural households or entrepreneurial businesses without access to electricity to increase the productive work hours of family members or business employees after dark by making affordable, easily-maintained and sustainable solar lighting products available in their villages. The solar lights would lead to an increase in household and business incomes and improved quality of life for several reasons detailed later in this grant application.
2. To increase the economic development of Malawi villages by allowing entrepreneurial businesses to operate longer hours each night. In addition, by providing the training of solar technicians, additional income opportunities are created through an affordable solar light program with long-term sustainability goals.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation
Additional Contribution (not matched by The Rotary Foundation)
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
