Solar Now Powers Computer Lab
Solar Now Powers Computer Lab!
Thanks to three Virginia Rotary Clubs Blacksburg, Montgomery County, and Christiansburg-Blacksburg, our computer lab is now solar-powered! When the computer lab project was first identified as a need, power to the school was more or less reliable, but by the time the lab was ready for operation, the reliability was no longer there. In order to ensure that the children could continue to learn despite frequent power interruptions, a better solution was needed. One resource Haiti has in abundance is sunshine, making solar the logical choice to solve this problem. A collaborative effort across three clubs from the same area of the state ensured that this need would be met. Rotary has also be instrumental in providing books to our school on multiple occasions. Our sincere thanks to the members of all three organizations for their faithful support of education in Haiti.
