Loriana Dembélé, the Italian Consulate and President of the Malian non-profit, Ji Duma

Loriana Dembélé was interested in expanding Ji Duma’s use of solar energy technology. I returned to the states and established Small Practical Projects LLC in hopes of facilitating solar projects in developing countries. I raised the money necessary to bring Dr. Komp and Carolina Cajina to Mali to teach the Malians to build panels and complete the installation of lights and a water pump at the Banco Schoool in the rural village of Banco.
