Ending the 5th project & starting the next plan
solar panel installed
The solar power project that started in Dec.2020,with the expected term to finish by Nov. 2021, finally completed by the end of Oc. 2022.
Lock-downs in China(where producing solar equipment) ,proliferation of Covid 19 in Myanmar & aroud the world,and,especially due to the Coup in Feb. 2021 that entailed frequent battles between Junta and people defene groups caused much delay in our work. After the Coup the battles were becoming more and more frequent in rural areas as many of the EAO(Ethnic Armed Organizations) groups are increasing ly taking sides of the revoluting people.
Two of the schools which BHN has installed computer systems for students to study how to use PCs were occupied by the Junt army soldiers and became unaccessible by our staffs.
We also had to change our planned villaged to another ones as they became dangerous for access. With such hindrances ,by extending the term by 11months,we could complete the 5th porject basically as planned.
Now, form the start of the new year, we could agree with the EAOs in Kayin (Karen) and Mon states to start next project. We proposed to EAOs to place priority to the public facilities in their villages like; (a)installation of computer systems with solar power into schools to enhance the computer literacy of the students
(b)installation of solar power and computer systems into hospitals/clinics to enhnace the serviceability to villagers.
However, due to various new regulations enforced by Junta are causing many tasks for all the INGOs active in Myanmar and our start of action may be delayed by certain period.
