The first source of electricity in Aklobotonu has come from solar panels.
These provide light for the school and power for the sewing machines, as well as charging cell phones.
What was the situation?
The sun goes down in the middle of the afternoon all year round, and with it the light. This made many tasks difficult, including the children's homework after school at Grace Academy.
What about the power grid?
Aklobotonu still does not have mains electricity. We have been fighting for it by talking to the people in charge in the district, they have located the community and the process has started but it is slow.
We hope it will come soon!
