|And the cost of a
thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be
exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
– Henry David Thoreau
|OCF Announces Fundraising Goal
Oregon Conservancy Foundation is currently raising money
for our Africa Project. This project has
been in existence since 1995. One of
our earlier efforts for this project involved the training of Lukas
of Larmatak Lor-Konerei (a Masai human rights organization located in
as a renewable energy technician. Lukas, a wonderful kind and modest
being, completed this training at Solar Energy International in
Colorado, and presently is the director of his organization's Solar
Project. We are hoping to provide Lukas and Larmatak Lor-Konerei with
powered vaccine refrigerators, startup funds for equipment for a
lighting business for rural local Masailand residents, assistance in
a renewable energy workshop taught by Africans for Africans, and
developing a wind-water pumping system that will provide water for two
Villages (approximately 5000 people). The total estimated cost is $46,100.
Your generosity is truly appreciated. A donation from the heart is gratefully accepted. Little by little, step-by-step, together we can create a better and more hopeful world.
Until we set up our website for online donations, please send your contributions via our mailing address.
