Transmar Funds Solar Light Program in Tanzania
Working in collaboration with ARTI, a social enterprise in Tanzania dedicated to the application of sustainable technologies for energy production, the Transmar Group funded a solar light program intended to bring solar power to students in rural, off-grid schools and their teachers.

At five local schools in cocoa supplying areas, the top students in each Form, as well as all teachers in each school, received solar powered lights. The students and teachers also received trainings on how to repair the lights, and science lessons on their functioning.

Ceremonies were held at local schools in Kyela, Tanzania, July 22-25, 2012 to celebrate the launch of the program.
