  • CoffeeSnobs FairCrack - Tanzania Solar Update.

    (If you get Deja Vu from this post, that's because I oops'd and deleted it and I'm re-posting the contents.)

    Bente has sent through 3 videos from Kilimanjaro locals that have the CoffeeSnobs solar installed and I've just uploaded them to youtube.

    It's great to see the positive impact, well done CoffeeSnobs everywhere!

    Primary School teacher from Omi - Munishi talks about the solar lights.

    Agustin from Mkessy-Mrawi talks about the solar install.

    Donath from Minde-Mweka chats about the solar too.

    Yeah, I love what our community can do on a shoestring budget.

    Bente has just sent through some more of Thadeus's great little video productions.

    Oliva, Evarist and Diomis's 1 minute videos are up on YouTube now

    And a couple more videos sent today of happy solar users.



    Bente tells me this is the end of the second rainy season where you can go for months of no sunshine but the FairCrack solar units are still working a treat.

    To simulate rainy season we tested the original units at the Snobbery in winter though a south facing window and found they did a great job of charging with only cloud reflected UV. Obviously not as good as direct sunlight but surprisingly good in poor conditions.

    Hooray for FairCrack and those who run it.

    FYI : Since reading your posts re Kiva I have been donating. Micro loans are such a good way to give people a boost.

    ...and Andy promises to be more careful with the DELETE button in future.
