Special Edition

The GlobalLight Projects team is pleased to announce that Thomas has arrived in Zambia and the installation of our first project is underway.

Thomas flew out of Toronto on Thursday, August 19 and will return on September 7. Every day will be packed with activity. As much as possible, our Zambian partners have arranged details so that the installation can be completed in a relatively short time. Part of the time will also be spent on building relationships and nurturing a funding proposal. Thomas has also taken along water testing kits to demonstrate the benefits of SODIS, the solar disinfection of drinking water (more info on SODIS is on our website). So, if all goes according to plan, Chona village in southern Zambia will have electricity in part of their school and safer drinking water. We think that is pretty good for our first trip, lasting less than three weeks!

Thomas will not be able to communicate with us for much of his time in Zambia. But we will update you on how things went as soon as we can. Thanks to all who have contributed, encouraged and helped. You are part of an historic event.

People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.
