Solar Power at the InABLE Computer Labs at Thika Primary/ High School For The Blind

Solar Power Panels on the computer lab building
Over the years inABLE has been dependent on the schools budget to pay the electricity in our assistive technology computer labs. Occasionally, the schools would experience some power disruption for upwards of a week and computer classes would come to a halt.
Fortunately, the Safaricom Foundation found a sustainable solution to our power-outage problem. Today all our computer labs for the blind at Thika Primary and Thika High School for the blind are fully solar powered and power outages in a thing of the past and we no longer experience any learning disruptions associated to power outages.
“If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path”, is a popular quote attributed to Buddha. This message communicates the spirit of Safaricom Foundation’s generosity and dedicated commitment to work with inABLE since the inception of the Computer-Labs-for-the-Blind program in Kenya.
We, once again give thanks to Safaricom Foundation for their philanthropic support. They brighten the way to help inABLE empower blind and visually impaired youths.
