What’s more exciting than accomplishing an important project?

Sharing the story with friends!

Pam and Murali Girl Scout Presentation Murali and I joined the Girl Scouts ‘Around the World in 5 Days’ Camp a few weeks ago, to talk about our solar energy project for the Anjana School in India.  These bright, energetic young women were attending a day camp with an international service theme.  Their leaders invited us to share our experience of helping this school purchase and install solar panels to help address their electricity issues.  This project enabled the school to start a computer lab and have classroom lighting, which would not have been possible otherwise.

The Girl Scouts not only wanted to hear about our work, they wanted to get involved, too! They collected books, and donated educational software programs.  Most importantly, with our help, they’ve started a Pen Pal program with the school children in India.  This is what Friends Unite is all about – bringing about lasting change in people’s lives through the power of ‘intentional unity.’

Girl Scouts Books Collected

We are into the last phase (Phase 3) of the project, and have only $1800 to go in order to fulfill the project cost to SELCO Solar India, the company we’ve partnered with to handle the solar installation.  If you are interested in donating, getting involved or learning more about Friends Unite, checkout our website!
