This project provides the school with access to vital learning resources that they haven’t been able to afford and as well as access to clean power.
The benefits of this project go way beyond the provision of technology, importantly providing additional learning hours for the school, which allows studying to continue once it’s dark. It also creates an environment for the wider community to be able to extend their learning opportunities and take advantage of clean electricity.
Currently, Kalowa Community Day School does not have access to electricity. Power2Africa aims to deliver power to the school, improving learning conditions and delivering a new digital lab so that the school can start teaching vital ICT skills.
Installing these resources in an off-grid community provides benefits outside of the school environment, including: offering electrical services to the community; increasing the proximity of charging points; allowing locals to attend the adult ICT courses the school will offer outside of school hours.
Working with P2A has opened a world of opportunity for the Turing Trust, connecting with P2A members means that we'll be able to support thousands of African students, enabling them to gain all important IT skills for our digital age
