Solar Panels Provide Power for Improved Education in Remote Maasai Area

Solar panels have been installed in the remote area of Ilkerin in Kenya, where many people from the Maasai tribe live. 
Solar panels will provide power for computer labs that will serve the local community, students and out of school youth that are receiving vocational training. The computers that are used are energy efficient and save money because they are so called thin clients, a type of solution where a computer network of multiple users is powered by just one PC or server.
The project is the product of collaboration between IICD and Edukans (in the Connect4Change consortium) and local partner ILIDP.
