project description

Small solar installation for Zamanyoni Primary School. Borehole (with pump) for Zamanyoni Primary School and Zamanyoni Village (Matabo district)

Zamanyoni School

The school and the village are approximately 100 km away, south of Bulawayo. The school is located at a distance of kilometers from the main road and has around 300 learners (together with the Secondary School 700 learners). For water, the school depends on the Shashani River, a few hundred meters away. During the dry season, water must be collected with a “scots cart” a few kilometers away. The school has no electricity, but the infrastructure for 1 room; there are power lines and fittings are fitted with lamps in it. The school can occasionally “borrow” a generator.

Mpilo Foundation has done “surveys” and found 2 “positive sites” close to the school, just outside the school grounds.Mpilo Foundation is also considering a small solar installation. The law prescribes education in the field of ICT. Electricity during the day is then a condition. Adult education in the evenings is also a wish here.
