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:
Solar Panel (with three light bulbs)
Improved Stove (with chimney)
Solar Warming Wall
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.
