We’ve been busy preparing for our upcoming projects.
In June/ July 2018 we will be installing solar equipment at two remote schools built by Friends of Monze on behalf of their trustees. The set up consists of two 35oW solar panels and two 220Ah deep cycle batteries. This powers LED lighting, Raspberry Pi with RACHEL learning resources, a projector and laptops.
We have organised a wide reaching training agenda for them. This will include Using and Maintaining the Solar panel System, Using RACHEL on a Raspberry Pi to access educational resources, and Securing and Maintaining a Computer Network.
We are also applying for grant funding to equip six more schools in Siavonga District with the same solar system. That would bring the grand total there to 17!
We are in the process of being registered as an NGO in Zambia which will make it easier to take out computer equipment to the schools we support.

In October we are planning to travel to Tanzania to work with Heshima . All very exciting!
