We’re extremely busy preparing for our trip to Zambia at the end of the month. This visit will include delivering training and installing solar panels at a school in Monze newly built by Friends of Monze.
Then it’s down to Siavonga to visit the 14 schools where we have previously installed solar panels over the last four years. These installations have been made possible by grants from University of Wales Trinity St Davids, S & C Electric Europe, Hub Cymru Africa, The Waterloo Foundation and Welsh Government Wales for Africa Grant Scheme administered by WCVA
We were also donated solar panels by Solar Plants, Baglan Bay.
We want to check that all the equipment there is functioning well and being properly maintained. We have supplied Raspberry Pi computers running RACHEL learning resources and we want to see which modules are most useful. We intend to assess the impact our project has made in the district so far. We are able to undertake this monitoring activity thanks to funding from The Waterloo Foundation.
At the end of the trip, we will spend a few days training teachers in Chilanga District.
