We’re busy checking out kit for next week’s visit to Siavonga, Zambia.

A pallet of eight solar panels donated by SolarPlants has gone out ahead of us. Two of the panels are reportedly damaged during transit, but we are hoping they may still have some functionality.

Our target over the three week visit is to install power in four schools and provide Raspberry Pi computers loaded with RACHEL. This is an offline e-library containing thousands of articles on agriculture, science, literature and health. Find out more about this brilliant resource here.

In addition we will run training sessions for teachers to increase their confidence in using and maintaining the equipment.
