TIFIE Humanitarian has received a donation of nearly 62-thousand dollars from Knox Capital as a result of proceeds from an annual golf tournament. The contribution will be used by TIFIE to "Light A Village" with solar powered energy in outlying villages of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Light A Village program, pioneered by TIFIE in conjunction with GOAL ZERO, accepts donations and grants to cover half the cost of providing solar power systems to villagers. The other half of the cost comes from the people themselves, who farm and trade their harvest to earn cash to buy the solar products at an affordable price.
