Not only will this off-grid solar system replace the school’s pollutant, unreliable diesel generator with a clean, dependable electricity source, it also will power a new computer lab! Soon, students will be able to engage with technology for learning and building critical job skills. Through a curriculum designed to engage students with the PV system, Twende hopes to inspire students to pursue STEM careers and the continuation of renewable energy projects in their community.
Cambodians are still dealing with the devastating effects of the Khmer Rouge genocide of the late 1970’s that targeted anyone with a formal education. Concurrently, an estimated 66% of Cambodian’s live without modern energy services. Limited access to energy, coupled with minimal education, leaves many faced with poor job opportunities, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.
With a realistic lifespan of roughly twenty-five years, this PV system can impact the lives of nearly 25,000 students from the Siem Reap region of Cambodia. Join us in empowering students at the Stephen Mazujian Middle School—Let's go solar, together!
