Schools in off-grid areas without access to electricity depend on fossil fuel lamps for studies during the evenings and mornings. These lamps are dim; there light is not bright enough for reading and they produce toxic fumes. Pupils are not able to complete their assignments. Also, the pupils do not learn computer work to keep up with the current technological era and are thus disadvantaged compared to their counterparts in areas within the national grid.
Daima Energy provides solar PV systems for lighting and providing power.
Once the systems are installed, the pupils have sufficient light for reading and doing their assignments without straining. With power, the schools now qualify to be supplied with computers for learning purposes. Teachers are able to charge their phones and power a TV set for the staffroom.
