project description

Small solar installation for IT education and evening classes for adults.

Mathonisa primary school

Mathonisa primary school is 53 km north of Bulawayo, close to the A8 (Bulawayo-Victoria Falls Road). The school has 400 students and has a water pump, but no electricity. There are 11 teachers, who live in buildings of the expropriated and abandoned farm next to the school. The principal, Mrs. Phephile Gwethu, explains that the law prescribes education in the field of ICT. Electricity during the day is then a condition. Adult education in the evenings is a wish of the adults in the community and also of the teaching staff.

Sustainable electricity for a school without electricity. Electricity in 2-3 classrooms and an office. Power for light for adult education in the evening, for a laptop, for compulsory IT education, for charging mobile phones and for a small fridge.

The expected results: A solar installation that covers the basic electricity needs. The ability to meet the obligation to provide IT education. Adult education can take place in the evening because there is light. In addition to education, the light in the evening offers the community the opportunity to meet on a joint development trajectory.

In accordance with the basic principles of the Mpilo Foundation, the projects are visited annually, for a maximum period of 5 years.
