Help Light up Tanzania with the Some of the Best Solar Lights

Light up Tanzania, a solar-based campaign lead by the nonprofit organizations Lalafofofo and Last Mile, have partnered together to provide the best solar lights to Tanzanian communities in East Africa. Villagers in the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania live in extreme poverty and have to endure 12-hour stretches of pitch darkness on a day-to-day basis.

Lalafofofo’s primary mission is to create and oversee economical, small-scale service projects through recruiting and educating families in Silicon Valley, California to assist with service projects. Additionally, Lalafofofo maintains 8-10 links to grassroots organizations in Tanzania, one of which is Last Mile, to focus on health, education poverty, children, conservation, and sustainability.

The LuminAID PackLite Nova, one of the best solar lights for outdoors, provides 24 hours of LED light on a single dose, eliminating the need for additional batteries. Its adjustable and compact size makes it perfect for camping, gardening, and any other outdoor activities.

You can purchase the LuminAID solar lantern today to help improve the living conditions for impoverished communities of Tanzania. 50% of the proceeds from each purchase will directly benefit Lalafofofo and their programs. Makers4Good is proud to work with Lalafofofo and Last Mile to bring light to those who need it.
