Be sure to visit our Pumpkin Patch
We have built and delivered 200 solar boxes to families living in extreme poverty in the mountains of Haiti. Two teams have delivered 100 boxes per team. The boxes were built by local volunteers. They provide two LED lights, a USB port that charges a cell phone, and a radio. The families who received them live with no electricity or running water. Many have cell phones, but have to travel down the mountain on foot and pay to charge their phones. The solar box lets them charge their phone easily. The boxes sit in the sun during the day to power up, and then at night provide light in their homes.

The Extra Mile
Although our focus is on long-term, life-changing projects like education and medical care, sometimes we do those little extras, like provide Christmas and Easter. Often, just knowing that there are people who care when you have been through a traumatic experience can have long-term effect on your life, particularly for children.
