We scoped out Naguabo Fire Station today in #puertorico today as a candidate for #solarpower, and Leilani adopted a cat - animals are in need here too!

We're pretty sure this is the first photo ever taken of #Mugumareno at night. When the solar lights were switched on, the villagers gathered in front of this small store and danced for hours in celebration of the new opportunities #solar will provide. #standardmicrogrid #leonardodecapriofoundafion #trinasolar #Zambia @conservation_lower_zambezi @aerialmediacr

A few days ago the sunset in Mugurameno signified the end of being productive for the day. When the sun went down, the town went dark. Now that they have solar power, the locals are venturing out at night to continue their day. Kids are studying at school and parents are enrolling in night classes. These extra hours of productivity will translate into better grades and new opportunities. #brighterfuturebecauseofsolar #solar #leonardodecapriofoundafion #standardmicrogrid #trinasolar #education

Although the kids of #Mugumareno have been watching us build the #solar array, dig trenches for power cable, and connect the school over the last month, most didn't fully understand what was happening until the lights came on. Now they wave at us, start dancing and shout "you bring the light, you bring the light" each time they see a member of our team. I'm not sure if there is a better feeling in the world than making a child smile and knowing you helped create a brighter future for them. #Africa #Zambia #brighterfuturebecauseofsolar #solarlove #standardmicrogrid #leonardodecapriofoundafion #trinasolar #zanaco @conservation_lower_zambezi

Mugumareno is a gorgeous little village that sits between the #zambezi #river and the Zambezi #mountains. We want to swim across the river to #Zimbabwe but the #hippos and #crocs are keeping us out of the water. 🐊😁#Africa #nature #solar #Zambia

The school in Mugurameno #Zambia had light for the first time last night. In addition to the 496 children enrolled in the school, the administrators plan to add night classes for adults looking to further their education. #brighterfuturebecauseofsolar #Africa #solar #sustainable #education #standardmicrogrid #leonardodecapriofoundation #trinasolar @conservation_lower_zambezi
