  17. 17. Solar Lighting - 5 Area Schools Nearly 3000 students and teachers Solar power would allow schools to board students and make sure they have ample time for night preps. Currently students walk home—for some, that can be up to 5 kilometers away.
  18. 18. Need for Water - Over 3000 residents There is currently one water pump in the community that produces 20 liters of water a day. Villagers are forced to collect dirty water from open wells. Solar powered borehole wells will provide 64,000 liters of water for the community
  19. 19. Solar Refrigeration - Kitimba Health Centre III Serves 8,000 people. At the Health Centre, the major issue is the lack of refrigeration. The clinic does not have access to electricity and stores vaccines on ice in a "cooler". A solar refrigeration system will enable long-term storage of medication and vaccinations.
