Twenty-four windows were recently donated for a home being built for missionaries doing work in Togo, Africa, by the Earthwise Group LLC, the  national network of independent manufacturers of windows and doors.

The missionary home is being built on the site of a future first-of-its-kind aquaponics project.  The food from the aquaponic system will help feed the clients and staff at a center for the blind, officials note. The aquaponics system will also teach villagers from the surrounding areas how to create sustainable food-producing systems for themselves and their families.

“The center being built in Togo will make a noticeable difference in the quality of life for so many people in the region,” says Mark Davis, executive director of the Earthwise Group. “The windows being donated by an Earthwise member will provide the new home with a quality, long-lasting and energy-efficient window solution. At Earthwise, we are thrilled that we could contribute to this worthy project.”
