CRPCA engaging the world
CRPCA has awarded Schools for Salone a grant to help fund the installation of their first solar power system in Sembehun Primary School in Sierra Leone. The school and community had already made plans to hire the recently retired head teacher to hold evening classes for students and adults; evening light will make these evening classes easier and make it possible for the school to become more self sustaining through income generation by charging cell phones. Let the light shine!
