This year we plan to install 45 such systems in Rwanda and another 45 in Cambodia. Solar (photovoltaic) panels will be used to charge car batteries, and the batteries will be used to light LED lamps, charge mobile phones, and more.
The students are now given workshops on basic electricity, solar power, and … basic electrical and mechanical skills such as sawing, deburring, … soldering, …
Many of the students, both boys and girls, have never handled a saw, a file, a clamp, …, before. Now they do. Many are taking to it enthusiastically.
It is a good start. Let us pray that our plans work out well.
