Summary

The project started in 2011 with the building of 3 classrooms followed by a bore hole in 2012 and then the addition of solar panels in 2013. We are now supplying the centre with sewing machines and carpentry tools. The community is isolated and this project is opening up new opportunities for them and engaging the young people in exciting new projects. The solar panels and lights will allow access to the rooms in the evenings.

Challenge

The challenges include organising the villagers and making them aware of the possibilities open to them. The project is providing new openings for them and is especially aimed at the teenagers and young adults who need to have the chance of embracing new skills. The lack of electricity and basic sanitation pose challenges.

Solution

Having the sewing centre and carpentry room means opportunities for children at the school nearby to learn new practical skills and give future employment possibilities. Having the solar lights means space for homework.

Long-Term Impact

They will have an income and should gain in confidence and be aware of what they can achieve.
