Projects We Have Funded

Solar Emergency Electrical Power

Tanzania, Our Lady of Fatima Parish Moshi:

Coordinator: Fr. Godfrey Mgonja, CSSp
Cost: $11,000
Donor:Wilkinson Family Foundation, Inc.

Due to the lack of reliable electrical service throughout the region, lights, refrigeration, computers, and appliances are all adversely affected several times in any given month. A “test” installation was funded by an American foundation to prove financial viability for a number of Spiritan projects in Africa.

The outcome of this project will serve as a model for subsequent installations allowing the clergy to continue to receive and administer to their parishioners regardless of the failings in the local electric grid.
