Today marks the official launch of Panels For Progress! Rest assured plenty of work has gone into getting to this point, but thanks to the commitment of our first NGO partner, the Not For Sale Campaign, our dedicated PFP team, and our awesome web developers, Jackstin, we are quickly gaining traction in the development of our first solar installation.
Check out our Projects page to learn more about our pilot project: installing solar on Not For Sale’s safe house and vocational training center for orphaned children in Northern Thailand who are at-risk for human trafficking. For more information on what we do and how we do it, visit our Approach page.
To stay up to date on our progress, next steps, how you can get involved, or just to help spread the word about this initiative, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. If you are a nonprofit organization and are interested in equipping your international projects with clean, reliable electricity, please send your information to Julie@panelsforprogress.org.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be meeting with solar equipment manufacturers that have dedicated philanthropic arms, or mandates to donate equipment to projects in areas of strategic interest, to present this amazing partnership opportunity to them.
We expect to have our 501(c)3 status confirmed in the next month or so, but all donations (monetary or in-kind) made in the interim will be retroactively tax deductible. More to come…
