Organization’s Geographic Region of Focus: Uganda
Alliance Areas of Concern: Health, Education, Environment, Poverty
Challenge: Provide resources and facilities for off the grid individuals to have electrical power in their lives.
Solution: Create a readily replicable “Rural Energy Center” where individuals can access services including internet access, photocopying and printing, television access, and cellphone charging, and purchase items including solar lanterns, haircuts, water packs, and cold drinks.
Excerpted from the Proposal:
“Innovation: Africa’s solar powered schools, medical clinics and water pumping systems serve rural communities. In powering a school, we provide students and teachers with a place to study and learn in the evening. In powering a medical clinic, we offer patients and medical professionals the opportunity to give and receive emergency care at night. But while these projects address the base needs of the community, they do not cater to the needs of the individual consumer.
“1.3 billion people worldwide live without electricity, nearly 600 million in sub‑Saharan Africa alone. These are people that rely on wood, diesel and charcoal for their energy needs. According to the Sustainable Energy 4 All’s Technical Report in April 2012, over 800,000 children are dying each year of indoor air pollution caused by smoke inhalation from products such as kerosene lanterns and coal stoves. It is easy to think of these children and their families as victims, but in reality, they are consumers spending up to 30% of their household income on the very products that make them sick and hurt the environment.
“Innovation: Africa’s Energy Center will provide rural consumers with an alternative to these unsafe and unsustainable energy products while saving them money. Cost effective and eco friendly products such as solar lanterns and cook stoves already exist on the market, but the challenge is distribution. There are no rural stores in which to sell their products. Our innovation is to build that store. Consumers can stop in to the Energy Center to charge their phone, surf the internet, make photocopies, buy a cold soda and learn about solar products for home use.
Our goal is to build a model that can be easily replicated in villages across Africa.”

at the 20 Youth Bobby Smith Jersey Premier White Neal Broten Jersey and the defensive team takes over possession. Those kicks that are tried from outside the 20 yard line and missed allow the defensive team to then take possession at the spot where the ball was snapped for the kick. A blocked field goal or punt results in a change of possession, Premier Green Jason Spezza Jersey as long as the team kicking does not recover the ball for a first down. The other definition of possession in the NFL concerns itself with whether a player has possession of the ball during a play. On passing plays, the NFL rule of possession states that the receiver must have possession of the ball with both feet down in bounds before a catch can be ruled legal. The rule further describes possession as the player having clear control of the football before going out of bounds. Receivers are ruled not to have possession of the ball legally if they are bobbling the football before going out of bounds. One of the plays most often reviewed in the NFL by the instant replay official concerns whether a player
remissions in 7 patients. While certainly promising, I would yeezy 750 free shipping be somewhat less confident yeezy 750 free shipping about drawing conclusions about ‘curative’ potential yeezy 750 new release on these few patients jerseys wholesale in NHL because 1) The replica 750 yeezy subset of patients is too small to draw conclusions compared cheap jerseys paypal to leukemia where we have more than 100 patients across multiple studies and CAR T therapy yeezy 750 new release types, and for longer durations, and 2) The results that are available cheap michael kors are somewhat less impressive than ALL. Although studies have cheap christian louboutin outlet been initiated, there is little data on the use of CAR T or related discount jerseys wholesale therapies in solid tumors, as far as I am aware. There are some safety and tolerability issues with CAR T which will need to be better understood in later stage trials. Notably there have been some safety concerns around "cytokine release syndrome" with CAR T, which can lead to high fevers or precipitous drops in cheap elite jerseys blood pressure. It is unknown how much of a factor this will be in larger trials or in other cancer indications. for CLT019 6 month survival is 75% vs 92% complete
