'What We Do' - Internationally/ Lighting Up Young Lives
The club is now undertaking a Solar Project for Malawi (Choma) which has been posted on the Global Giving website
The Choma community in Malawi is far from the electricity grid. Recent exam results are disappointing and the community has decided that for two months prior to the Standard 8 exams, the children camp out at their schools to get extra tuition in the evenings. When it is dark any tuition ceases. The Rotary Project will provide solar charged battery lighting for classrooms, offices and a Girls' Hostel as well as portable, rechargeable lamps put in sunlight by day and used in rooms by night.
