Review for Solar Electric Light Fund, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This fantastic organization brings clean, environmentally friendly solar energy to disadvantaged communities to help power schools, health clinics, agricultural projects, and villages in third-world nations around the globe. I am amazed at what they can do on such a small budget. But, with their dedicated and expert team, they have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Love their carbon offset program too! They rock!
