November 2013, Bulenga, Uganda: A Broader View is happy to report that the Cameron and Jane Baird Foundation awarded a grant of $5,000 to benefit ABV’s Bulenga Uganda solar light project.
The name of this solar project is: Let There Be Light Bulenga Campaign. The program is focused on getting hot, dangerous, smokey kerosene lanterns out of the homes of families with young and school-aged children. The money has been used to purchase 100 WakaWaka Solar Lights.
The lamps will be distributed to vulnerable families with children in the community. Intended recipients might be the following: AIDS widows and children, orphans and their host families, teachers, families with chronically ill children, handicapped children and adults.
