Lyndsay Nicole  (Solo & Solar Light)
Lyndsay is an expedition paraglider pilot who travels all over the world, flying regions few have flown before. That's why when she was looking for opportunities in 2018, Malawi was at the top of her list.

During Lyndsay's two-month stay, she became heavily involved in the School of Dreams activities (women's tailoring project and youth internet center) and also took it upon herself to bring the power of light to hard working students in the local village.

Lyndsay flew some epic lines during the day, and in the evening she would visit the homes of students who were studying in the dark and, with the blessing of their parents, teach them how to charge and use solar panels and lights to aid them with their studies.

The "Dream Lights" project was an overwhelming success and she is planning to expand upon this project when she returns in May/June of 2020.

'As for why the project speaks to me, it has a lot to do with my ending up with two new toasters this year. Yes I like toast a lot, and sure there's a fairly reasonable explanation (one's a toaster oven,) but I realized at some point that nobody really needs two toasters.  We have so much luxury and comfort in our lives that not everybody shares, and I want to learn how to spread that around. And, with the state of politics in the US turning so many people inward and away from each other, I was compelled to reach out somewhere totally new to expand my world and my connections.   I smile most when I'm flying or traveling, and from what I've seen so far Malawians smile most of the time no matter what, so it seems a natural combination.   I've started practicing Chichewa, and one of the first websites I found list four different ways to say I am happy! That's reason enough for me.'  -Alan  [group:image:22869][/][group:image:22870][/][group:image:22868][/]
