September 2012: 2011 Annual Report and New Website Launch!

This past summer was a busy one for us, with our projects in Benin gathering momentum and many of our installations in Haiti coming to completion. Stay tuned for more news about these initiatives in the coming weeks. Today, we’re happy to share with you SELF’s 2011 Annual Report and announce the launch of our new website!

> 2011 Annual Report

Over the course of two decades, SELF has evolved from an organization with a singular focus on installing solar home systems to one that takes an integrated approach to community empowerment using a diverse mix of solar solutions to improve the lives of those who don’t have access to electricity. By working closely with communities to implement our Whole Village Development Model, we seek to ensure benefits in education, health care, economic development, and food and water security.

Our 2011 Annual Report illustrates how solar continues to transform lives. In 2011, we continued to facilitate access to quality health care services, clean drinking water and enhanced food security through our projects in Benin, Haiti and Rwanda. We also worked to sustain the longevity of our systems previously installed in Burundi, Kenya and Lesotho by providing maintenance services and operations guidance to the communities where they are located.

> New Website

We’re proud to announce that we’ve launched our new website to provide a fresh look at our work by featuring more updates from the field and personal profiles of those benefiting from our systems. The new user-friendly design and enhanced functionality also provide better access to all of the projects and services offered by SELF. In addition, the site features new content, photo galleries, blogs and numerous ways to support our work. We’re excited to share the new site with you and hope you will take a moment to check it out.
