Focused Expenses LE has few 'overhead' costs. The worksite (a garage) is free. All participants are volunteers. Consequently, all donated funds go directly to providing practical solutions to the problems of developing nations. As we have our own 501(c)(3) managed by a volunteer, we can ensure tax deductibility for all donations at no cost.
Looma For several years we will focus on establishing Looma in Nepal, strengthening the commitment of Looma's international and Nepalese business and education partners, and continuing to improve Looma's hardware, software, and 'international' content.
We may need to fund some part of the cost for the pilot systems and living expenses for any LE interns. We may also want to assist local partners with the initial startup expenses they incur to generate local content as we learn how best to use Looma's capabilities.
SunLights Thanks to your donations, VillageSolutions (VS), our Nepal partner, has installed solar lighting in the shelters of 799 of Nepal's thousands of earthquake-displaced people. 91 more are in process and VS has inventory for another 100-150 at their current cost of $82/family.
