Most people in the United States take electricity for granted. Only if a powerful storm hits and it is taken away do we get an understanding of what it is like to depend entirely on the sun for our light.

There is, however, a significant population in the heart of the United States that lives their lives with only the sun to light the way.

The Navajo Nation is large. Our club is located slightly north of the Nation. And so our project began.

RC Durango Daybreak, "The Hands on Club" is always looking for opportunities to make lives better.  Recently, an opportunity to create a playground for the children who visit Manna was discovered.

In June 2013 eight Rotarians from The Rotary Club of Durango Daybreak in District 5470 traveled to Nepal to help install 165 Solar light kits along The Great Himalayan trail in Humla, Nepal for tea house entrepreneurs. This is one of the poorest regions of the trail if not in all of Nepal. The club worked with the Nepal Trust, a Scottish NGO with long standing ties to Rotary, to organize the project. The partner club in Nepal was the Rotary Club Bagmati, Nepal District 3292. Take a tour of the photos by following this link.  Learn what an adventure our trekkers had.
