About the Need:
After successful piloting phase 1 of the project in summer 2010--in which we saw more than 100% increases in the incidence of health center delivery and prenatal care attendance following the installation of a solar unit--we are currently in process of implementing a larger pilot with 12 solar units in December 2011--June 2012. We have received many requests to expand our model and would like to scale the intervention up to 100 health facilities in Uganda over the next three years; we are also open to the idea of expanding past Uganda if sufficient funding is provided. To accomplish our goal of Ugandan expansion, we need approximately $300,000. We plan to scale up in phases, and would gratefully accept any amount of financial investment.
