Extend the Day envisions a world where no child is denied an education or opportunities because they do not have access to light!
This #GivingTuesday, help Extend the Day provide solar lights to the most desperate situation we have witnessed and experiences! The 'ethnic cleansing' that the Myanmar military is afflicting on the Rohingya people, are forcing them to flee for their life with nothing, but maybe the clothes on their back, to the refugee camps in southern Bangladesh. The deep desperation of this situation is heartbreaking! The stories of rape, murder and the terrible journey to get to the camps are enough to make us want to do whatever is in our power to bring just a little light, a little hope to their lives.
This giving season remember those who truly have nothing, and no access to anything except what we can help provide. We have a partner currently working in the camps, the ability to produce as many lights as needed and all we need is the funding!
Thank you in advance for helping Extend the Day provide a little light to this desperatly dark situation!
Stories from the field
Huge thank you to Solar Power World for this interview at the 2017 Solar Power International Conference.
We work with locally run and operated non-profits in the areas of need. This allows us to be culturally sensitive and have the ability to monitor the lights.
This simple solar light will help children in disadvantaged countries to improve their future through education!
Executive Director, Jo Lonseth explaining our mission
