Solar

  • In areas where we work, solar is critical to ensure power because infrastructure can be weak - for example Central Zambia experiences rolling 12 hour power outages
  • Tablets are stored in a charging unit which is housed in a secure location in the school, such as the principal’s office
  • Two keys are required to open the charging case, which are kept by principal and head teacher
  • Tablets are charged after school each day and collected by teachers each morning
  • Solar can be expanded as the programme develops to provide additional lighting for classrooms etc
