How will this project make a difference?

The “Warm Homes” project is a 4-part project that will help families living in an isolated mountain community with no access to electricity:

  1. Solar Panel (with three light bulbs)

  2. Improved Stove (with chimney)

  3. Solar Warming Wall

  4. Wood Floors

Our job is to work on parts 1 and 2 by installing solar panels and building clean stoves! This will help provide light in the evening so children can study and parents can work, expanding their economic and education opportunities.
