SOLAR ENERGY FOR TSEKWELE SECONDARY SCHOOL
Tsekwele Secondary School is located in the Mangochi District of Malawi, 12 km away from the electrical grid and the closest energy supply. The school serves 280 students from 70 different villages.
None of the existing four classrooms at Tsekwele had electricity, so it was impossible to hold classes or teacher/parent/student meetings at night.
Without the ability to study easily or complete homework at night, students are unprepared, fall behind in class and fail exams. Bringing solar energy to Tsekwele Secondary School has changed the lives of students, teachers and the community as a whole.
