Malavi

 

A Light in the Dark

Rural schools in Malawi face many challenges, including a lack of electricity that limits time for studying and teachers’ ability to prepare lessons.The University of Strathclyde has been working with partners in Malawi since 2008 to develop sustainable models for community renewable energy deployments. Where solar energy systems now supply electricity, educational outcomes are improving and school energy committees are generating revenue to support the sustainability of their systems.
