ECCA distributed Solar Tukis to 350 families and 400 families in the earthquake affected areas of Malta and Asrang respectively.
When distributing Solar Tukis, ECCA provides the villagers an option of either using individual solar panels or establishing a multiple charging station at schools. By establishing a multiple charging station at schools, we give the families another reason to send their children to school. Through this initiative, we have succeeded in increasing the school enrollment and class attendance rates of students in rural areas.
