Today was another historic day for Powering Potential.

We signed a contract with the Tanzanian Rural Energy Agency, a division of the Ministry of Energy and Minerals. They awarded us a grant of  Tsh 13,517,874. That’s Tanzanian shillings not U.S. dollars. It’s equivalent to about $8,600.

This grant will help cover the costs of The Technology Tent Phase 1 at Baray and Endallah Secondary Schools which will be implemented in October 2012.

I’m thrilled that a Tanzanian government agency is supporting our work.
