Power to the Children Project - Phase III
Electricity costs. Currently Machao uses paraffin to provide illumination which is toxic. Renewable energy can be particularly suitable for developing countries like Kenya. In rural and remote areas, like Makueni (where the orphanage is located), producing renewable energy locally can offer a viable alternative. Our desire is to provide solar panels which can be inverted into electricity. Renewable energy projects in many developing countries have demonstrated that renewable energy can directly contribute to alleviating poverty by providing energy for cooking, space heating, and lighting.
Penny drives at your child’s school, bake sales, rummage sales ... the ideas are endless. You can make a difference in a child’s life. Every dollar counts, truly. No amount is too small. Please consider holding your own fundraiser - birthday party where you ask people to donate to Machao, for example - or ask us for ideas.
