Funds are needed to ensure Solar Para Niños is a success. Your donation will help offset the costs of project materials, equipment and more for the project. Students in the Sustainable Systems Engineering online master’s degree capstone project are currently designing plans for different levels of funds, and the plan we implement will be based on how much we raise. Any amount helps!

Note that Tinjum will pay his own way to Puerto Rico for site visits.

For a quick and easy donation, donate through GoFundMe:
