Empowering Education in Sub-Saharan Africa with Solar-Powered Systems
We are implementing a project to improve education in areas with limited access to electricity in Sub-Saharan Africa by promoting battery-free solar power systems. Our goal is to introduce this system not only to private entities but also to educational institutions. By introducing this system to schools, teachers can conduct high-quality education using computers and other devices, while students can use rechargeable lanterns provided by the schools to improve their home study environment and increase their motivation to learn. We tested the system by charging 20 rechargeable lanterns without connecting them to batteries. By adding a solar panel to this simple device, we can charge around 40 devices simultaneously without using expensive batteries.
Our partner in South Sudan is also working on a rental business for private entities before starting this project, as many people in South Sudan are interested in solar power but face the challenge of high battery costs.
