Connecting schools with ‘Solar Connect’
Thanks to Link Community Development’s Solar Connect program, rural schools across Malawi, Ghana, South Africa, and Uganda are able to access the Internet for the first time. Says LCD: We connect schools with their district education office through a computer with 3G internet connection powered by solar panels. Teachers and headteachers can complete their administration without leaving school. That means they can spend more time teaching, and children spend more time learning.
