Our Charity

Giakonda Solar Schools

Giakonda Solar Schools was registered with the Charity Commission on 12th September 2016 as Charity number 1169138.
We began our volunteering work with a visit to Zambia in January 2015.


The trustees are Howard Kirkman, Wendy Kirkman, Avi Koirala, Jason Brown and Malcolm Boorer.


Our purpose is to further the advancement of education of children and adults, particularly in the field of computers, computer science and related subjects. In rural communities where there is no grid power, we supply and install  solar power equipment. This  provides the necessary infrastructure for computer systems and  LED lighting.
We carry out this work in Zambia, Nepal and other countries as agreed by the trustees.

Following a large donation of desktop computers and laptops, we have also developed a project to help individuals in Swansea, Wales, who are similarly at a disadvantage.

We are always keen to help other charities in any way we can. We have supplied refurbished laptops and Raspberry Pi computers to Linden Church Trust, Friends of Monze and Heshima.
