An exciting update from Mama Lucy:
Unity Is Power – believe me or not!
Before Sanjay and Stacey left to return back to the US in early August this year, we had several meetings with Rachel, Kira and Mindy of Sun Strides, a nonprofit organization based in the US. They came to join hands with us so as to support and push us forward in what we’re trying to achieve. The major issue of our joint meetings was about the solar power installation for our school.
Our aim is to start computer classes by January 2009 for our primary classes. That could only be possible if we have electricity. As we’ve said before, we received 5 computers already from Epic Change this summer.
It was on Friday 12th September 2008, when Sun Strides re-visited our school and started the work. On Sunday 14th September, I couldn’t believe my own eyes when for the first time I saw electricity at our school!

Special thanks to Sun Strides for their fabulous job; for working and paying for the costs of solar installation. Otherwise, pupils couldn’t enjoy the computers and we would still be having dark nights.
We have been able to achieve what we have because you’ve joined our efforts. Your donations, your ideas, and entire support have brought great change to our school and community.
Thank you Epic Change! Thank you Sun Strides! Thank you all who have supported us and made us be where we are. Your support means a lot to us!
With Much Love,
Mama Lucy – Shepherds Junior School
It’s great to have partners in creating Epic Change, and we’re so glad Sun Strides decided to implement solar power at Shepherds Junior as their first project. Thanks so much to Rachel, Kira, Mindy and all of the donors and supporters at Sun Strides!
