Tanzsolar have been observing the existing Solar LED lighting systems at the school by doing some maintenance like replacing broken switches,light holder,LED lights and cleaning dust and bird drops from solar panels on roof top in order to obtain good battery charge, . Apart from students and teachers being thankful to Tanzsolar for making the LED lighting system brighter, they also request Tanzsolar to make efforts to ensure that portable NIWA LED lanterns are available for sell at school so that they can buy them for their family members through Tanzsolar system of payment by a special discount in order to reduce money which their families spend to buy kerosene. In addition Tanzsolar has communicated with the head teacher for school to produce names of the best girls students in each class room stream so that each one of the best girls students can receive a new portable NIWA solar LED lantern with phone charging so that they will be able to study after dark at home. School board and teachers have expressed their interest in upgrading school solar lighting system so that they can be able to use printers, and photocopy machines in order to reduce money they spend every time they prepare examinations by printing and photo copying far away from school. Tanzsolar is in the process of locating dealers who may supply low powered printers and photo copy machines for school before the upgrading of the school solar lighting system. Tanzsolar is also negotiating with school board from another rural secondary school which has plans to also install solar lighting system.

Solar Electricity for an African Schol

Tanzsolar is in the final stages of upgrading the LED lighting systems at the school to provide brighter LED lights. The students and teachers have expressed their thanks for making the LED lighting system brighter. In addition Tanzsolar has started an effort to reward the best girls students in each class room stream with a new portable NIWA solar LED lantern with phone charging so that they will be able to study after dark at home. It is sometimes unsafe for the girls students to come to the school to study at night and then return home safely. If the first phase of this effort is successful based on the views of the girls students,teachers,school board, Tanzsolar will make plans to try and provide these LED lights to as many girls students who are in need of solar lighting at home. The school board has accepted the challenge to be responsible for security and some fund raising to provide upkeep of the school solar system. Tanzsolar will attempt to provide the oportunity for cooperation between the school board,teachers,students and Tanzsolar to improve and provide solar lighting to as many rural schools as possible.

Since the beggining of March 2015, Tanzsolar has become most fortunate to be able to install an additional 10 LED lighting systems with phone charging in Rorya and Serengeti Districts Mara region. We must also give thanks to SIMU SOLAR  LTD for providing and assisting with the installation of one of their 4 light LED phone charging systems in a health dispensary in Rorya district . This contribution has enabled Tanzsolar to complete the health dispensaries that were requested to be completed by the Rorya District  medical team. In addition Tanzsolar has been able to start the process of installing two more systems in remote areas of Rorya disctrict. Also Tanzsolar is installing 4 more LED systems in Serengeti Districts and two more systems in Mkulanga district in coast region. The total solar LED systems that are installed in Mara and Coast regions todate are 22. There are 50 rural dispensaries and health centres in Mara and Coast regions that are still in need of acquiring solar lighting and phone charging in mara and coast Regions. Tanzsolar is comitted to try to raise additional funds so that our goal for providing solar lighting for all health centres and dispensaries without lighting will be completed.

Tanzsolar has also been able to provide 12 rural household with the smaller 3 light LED systems by using a payment purchase plan with discounts to rural households. Any assistance from our supportes for completion of this effort will be grately appreciated.
