Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
The Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF), a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit working to eliminate energy poverty through the use of solar power, today announced that its projects in the field, service offerings and Whole Village Development Model are being highlighted in a newly designed website. The new user-friendly design and enhanced functionality of the site provides better access to new content, photo galleries, blogs, and numerous ways to support the organization’s work.
“Our Whole Village Development Model is the culmination of our twenty-plus years of experience in the field,” said Bob Freling, SELF’s Executive Director. “Through this model, we’re transforming lives. Many adults for the first time have access to quality health care services, clean drinking water, and sustainable sources of food. And the children born into the communities where we work can now look forward to a lifetime of opportunities their parents may have never dreamed about.”
The site also features updates from the field and personal profiles of those benefitting from SELF’s solar solutions. More information about SELF’s Whole Village Development Model and projects can be found at http://www.SELF.org.
