Educating girls toward solar, Kamsi Primary School
After the end of this academic school year, Community Building Group regional office in West Africa worked tediously in the village of Kamsi and Djomga with student parents and teachers in order to continue providing support for girl’s education. We have conducted several field missions to discuss with the communities to encourage them to support girls such as reading more during the summer vacation.
We met with the director of the school of Kamsi, Djiguimdé, who reported that “he was very proud and honored to have solar electricity in his school, which in turn helped students to be at the top rank within the district. The school has done a great job with 91.43% of students admitted to the Certificate of Primary Education Exam (CEB).”
Kamsi is ranked 2nd in the Ramongo district for the CEB. In addition, the school also won the CEB's best student award and best teacher award.
Community Building Group team have visited couples of households in Kamsi. The team met with Martine and Evelyne, they both are a student admitted to the Certificate of Primary Study Exam. According to Martine, she said that we have no idea how the Community Building Group solar education project has transformed her life here. I mostly spend time after school to read and do homework, and my mom let me study. Because, people from the community building group and our teachers told to my parents to let us study, as we have light now. This is transformative, having solar light and being able to study”
All Kamsi thanks Community Building Group and Global Giving including all donors for their help, thanks to the solar electrification project for supporting girls education, students and teachers in this remote dryland where life condition is very hard.
More yet to come!!!!!
