Challenge

Orropsco school has 80 students and it runs without any source of electricity, hence they struggle everyday with academic and other different activities.

Solution

Light4Education will install a 1.1 kWp solar PV system for the Orropsco school in La Guajira, Colombia. The system will provide energy to the school, with this they will get the following benefits: Improving technology information in the classroom, enhanced staff retention and teacher training, better school performance based on attendance, completion rates and co-benefits such as improved sanitation and health, and community resilience.

Long-Term Impact

In addition to improving the quality of the education for the kids, we will train 2 members of the community so they know about solar energy and how the system works. This will allow them to do some basic maintenance work and supervise the system, and more often to spread their knowledge to their community.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
