Field Report: How Two Rotary Club Members are Changing Lives in Fiji

One of the best things about the work of D.light is that it doesn't take a lot of resources or huge numbers of people to make a big impact.

Jane and Steve Fletcher, members of the Del Mar Rotary Club in California, used a grant of $3600 to purchase and distribute 100 D.light Novas in the village of Vuaki in Fiji. Having traveled there to personally deliver the solar lights to the families, Jane reported an immediate effect: "A lot of the women were really excited because their kids got all stoked on being able to use it for their homework."

As a next step, the Fletcher's plan to purchase additional lights for Vuaki's community center. We are grateful for invaluable friends and partners like the Fletcher's who are helping us reach even the most remote villages in the world!
