THE SOLAR PANELS
In most parts of rural Madagascar there is still no access to grid electricity. Rural schools, as much as the rural population, therefore have no electricity. This implies that classes cannot take place and students cannot study in the afternoon, as after 4:30 pm it gets too dark in the classrooms, especially during the rainy season. Without electricity, teachers have no possibility to make photocopies or access the Internet.
In 2018 we provided the Mamiko school in Djangoa with solar panels. At the same time we bought for the school a pc, a printer, a CD player and a beamer to project videos and films for the children.
If you wish to know what kind of solar panels we got for the Mamiko school and at what price, you can download the full description here. This offer has been positively evaluated, in terms of quality-price ratio, by an engineer at the Bern-based international energy and infrastructure company BKW.
We are currently analysing the solar power needs of the Saint Joseph school in Maherivaratra to provide them with the much needed access to electricity.
