Eleventh Solar Lighting Project Underway September 13 2012

...from the pages of Earth Garden #161

EGFA’s 11th project began in July of 2012. Solar lighting is being installed in three buildings (with six rooms each) in a health post in the village of Sotang in the Solukhumbu Valley district. As EG went to press the equipment was being porterd to the village. EGFA has already raised enough funds for its 12th project: solar lighting for a mothers group community building in the remote village of Lamjung that services womens groups from five nearby villages.

Above is an image of the solar panels being prepared for installation on the roof of the Sotang community health building.

 

While the installation was underway a boy was brought to the centre for medical help via basket! He had injured his leg rather badly and required stitches.
