Zainab is a brilliant young girl from Sierra Leone who loves to go to and excels at school. Her schooling has been affected negatively by insufficient sleep due to the buzzing, mosquitoes’ bites and also bouts of the killer malaria disease.
Her parents are both school teachers and sometimes their salaries are not paid promptly by the government. This has introduced an extra economic strain on the family and as a result Zainab has had to, unfortunately, cope and sleep without a mosquito net. This has resulted in periodic bouts of malaria that have made her miss school for 1 – 2 weeks a few times a year.
Zainab was delighted to receive a net as this helps guarantee sleep and freedom from malaria. Now she will no longer have to miss school from malaria.

Dappu Bai and her husband Jagannath live in Munj Ka Pura a remote village in Rajasthan. Jagannth is a Priest. He visits neighboring villages on his bicycle to perform prayer ceremonies during festivals.
In order to complete nightly prayers, Dappu and Jagannath used an oil lamp, which costs $3 a month to run. As their total income is about $12 to $15 a month, they are happy to have received a light, which not only illuminates much better but saves a significant portion of their income. They say thank you to Susan who donated the Solar Lantern and they are praying for her prosperity and good health.
