In the past, all education and activities took place with limited access to electricity, aside from the occasional power supplied by a diesel generator. The nearest power line lies 5 km down the mountain in the closest town. That changed in late August of 2019, as Twende staff and a team of 12 volunteers (from three countries!) traveled to Durissy to empower education for hundreds of Haitian students. Armed with the technical know-how, donated supplies and spirit, these volunteers lived and worked alongside community members for a week in order to install and train locals on the benefits of solar energy for their schools.
