9/03/18 – Thanks to you and to everyone who has supported Village Improvement’s goal of reducing carbon emissions and improving the quality of life for Liberian villagers through the increased use solar lanterns, we have been able to apply for a license to operate as a business in Liberia.
The license was granted last month. We are now, and will continue to be, a registered non-profit but we are now able to have an enterprise component also. We will be able to import and sell solar lanterns and then use the profit to provide lanterns to school children and villagers who cannot afford to buy lanterns.
Our business plan is to work with corporations and non-profits that have strategic philanthropic goals focusing on environmental concerns. These large companies may wish to donate lanterns in large quantities and we can provide the lanterns for them and deliver them to their chosen recipients.
We are always looking for the best quality lanterns at the best price. We could use your help. Have you ever used a solar lantern, perhaps for camping or as part of your emergency kit? We’d love to hear from you.
