Solar for Cameroon

Oct 16, 2012

Lesson plans educating and exciting students!

In preparation of sending our solar kits, we sent Mr. Monthe our basic lesson plan for our Circuits and Solar class.  He responded that his students have responded enthusiastically to receiving the plans. Below is a direct quote from his email; French is the language in Cameroon.
  "During my teaching, at the questions and answers time, most students always tell me that , they want to become solar entrepreneur and there will be light everywhere, more micro solar jobs creating . Last time during a solar class, a student say that he want to design and create a solar Kiosk where he would be selling solar light and charging of mobile phones , as assignment , I asked the whole class that design a solar kiosk on their own with little description for next week."
We are proud to be helping these children learn and change their lives.  Interest in the course has expanded to the neighboring villages and Mr. Monthe has prepared lesson plans for them.  This allows other teachers, homeschoolers and even adults to learn about solar and circuitry.  All of this in anticipation of the hardware that we hope to provide through your generous donation.
