Two successes in one week!!

1. The Audit

We did really well in both the Local and UK compliance audits so the team are very happy; the hard work paid off.  Our records and organisation were described as 'excellent' which is a real testament to the work everyone's put in over the last 4 months.  It is also a great way to end my placement here in Zambia; I leave the office next Friday and Zambia on 24's come around so quickly!  I'm not quite escaping Solar Aid yet as I'm meeting the guys in the London office on 27 June to handover to the next volunteer.

2. Google Global Impact Challenge

Solar Aid won one of the four £500,000 prizes up for grabs.  We're really happy as you can see from our team pictures below.  Thanks for all your support, we'll put the money to good use.  As for me, I'll be trying to spread the solar message through Asia with my trusty solar light.
