Six thousand miles from home Montana Busch and a crew from his company, Alternative Energy Southeast (AES) put their pledge to give to others to the test.
In the town of Eku in the delta of southern Nigeria, the team brought solar power to the Shepherd Care Orphanage and Widow Center. Thanks to their efforts hundreds of students and widows now have access to a far more reliable source of power then they have ever had before - the sun.
