Greenhouse Advances

Our newest greenhouse has recently taken a big step in its technical development thanks to collaboration with The Salvadoran Association of Fellows of Friends of Korea (ASEBAC) and the Institution of Electrical Engineers and their social outreach program (IEEE & IEEE SIGHT). A group of students worked with these organizations from second to the fifth of August to install an automated watering system and solar panels to power said system. This process has allowed our greenhouse to reach a new level of efficiency and productivity, helping extend its impact on the school and our community and decreasing power needs for the greenhouse.

Furthermore, the work provided our students with a wonderful, hands-on experience working with technology in a way that pertains to to their surroundings and opens their eyes to new possibilities for their future. Solar technology is becoming an increasingly in-demand field and greenhouse and aquaponic systems hold a lot of promise for continued growth in Northern Morazán. Thanks to your continued support and the help of our partners, we were able to provide this opportunity to a group of Amún Shéa students

It is not just this group of students that will benefit, though; all students at Amún Shéa now have the opportunity to see this technology in action and work with it themselves. In fact, a group of students has begun work on an automated watering system for another area of the school and now has the option to use this new system as a guide and inspiration for their own project.

This project, for all its benefits, was not a cheap one. Even with the generous financial and technical support of IEEE and ASEBAC, PEOF put a significant amount of resources into making this a reality. We hope that, as before, you continue to see the benefits that this project holds and continue to support our mission. Thank you so much for your continued interest in our work and we will keep you up to date on any new developments.
