Space to hold the initial PV module training workshop being constructed (compliments of Consul Dembélé) in Consul Dembélé’s front yard

The purpose of the initial phase of the project was not only to provide light and running water to the school, but to get a local cottage industry started, producing solar panels and solar cookers from local materials. In order to do so, we trained local Malians to build, install and repair solar panels, water pumps, batteries and cookers.
