I challenged myself to climb Mount Snowden (highest mountain in Wales) to help raise funds to purchase solar panels for Holy Child School in Ghana.
Following the energy crisis in Ghana and funding cuts, this has led to high energy costs for the school which has affected the teaching quality and well being of the girls.
Just one solar panel will go a long way to assist the school in maintaing its electricity for the coming years.
I am hoping to raise £1000 that will go towards this project and will ensure that LIGHTS ARE ALWAYS ON.
Please donate generously, every penny helps and together we can make a small difference to the lives of young people.
Thank you so much.
94/96 Solar Panel Project
The project includes the provision and installation of solar panels and inverter system that will aid electrification of the classrooms and security lights within each block; a set 5-year funded maintenance period of the system (post-installation) and training for Maintenance crew as well as interested students on the operation and daily maintenance.
The Cost estimation to see this through is Ghc550, 000 (137, 500USD).
The Project's goal is to ensure that funds that are spent by the school (approximately GHC 200,000 / USD 50,000) per year towards electricity can be diverted towards improving its infrastructure, upgrading it's science/math/language/arts laboratories and facilities by taking away the worry of keeping the LIGHTS ON!!!
