Tap the sun
This summer, we will be working in the Mossuril District of Mozambique, where 71% of the population live without a safe sanitation system and 68.2% without clean water.
Our project in Chicoma village, the first of many projects in this area, will change this.
Find out how solar power will change lives in Mozambique
For Bina, above, it means staying in school. Solar power will help her fulfill her dream to become a teacher.
Harnessing the power of the sun, technicians will use solar panels to power a series of pumps that will connect clean groundwater to four taps in the village. This means that the residents of Chicoma will have a reliable source of clean water 365 days a year!
The planned project will also include construction of bathroom facilities for the school, meaning Bina, her fellow students and teachers will all have decent toilets. This goes beyond the obvious improvements in dignity in their daily lives; access to clean water and decent toilets will also help the older girls when they are menstruating. Privacy means not missing school and not missing out on their education.
