    Hi y’all! I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your International Women’s Day blog post. It was a wonderful way of highlighting how investing in women provides so many global benefits! I work with Elephant Energy, a Colorado-based non-profit that promotes sustainable social enterprise in Namibia and the Navajo Nation. As we run projects that promote women’s entrepreneurship, it is always nice to partner with other like-minded organizations. Currently, we are partnering with USAID and divi, Inc., to bring power to 16,000 homes in Namibia and Zambia over the next two years. Would you be interested in supporting our efforts by telling our story? You can check out our work at elephant energy.org and the official press release for our Creating Digital Kerosene project at http://tinyurl.com/lo3985m. Thanks for the engaging content, and keep doing what you do!

    Best,
    Grace
