In sub-Saharan Africa the sun goes down at around 6:00. As many of the pupils attending our school often walk 10km to get to school that doesn’t leave many hours to study at home.
In 2016 we ran a successful pilot scheme with our partners Power a Life.
We gave a solar-panelled light to each student in Year 4, 5 and 6 at Peace and Good Hope School, near Bulawayo.
Already we have seen pass rates double as a result.
