The association supports the die Lake Bunyonyi Community and Island Schools Association in Uganda, especially in the goal to design, finance and build a solar ferry. This ferry will rely on solar energy only to solve the main transportation issues at the lake: Allow all children to reach their islandschool safe, reliable and for free. Plus help to foster local commerce with additional transportation capacity when students are in school.
Just before the pandemic closed all traveling, the 300 backpacks originating from a HPE Distribution Partner Conference were handed over to the new owners: Excited students that will have now essential for schooling: solar lights, pens, pencils, eraser, ruler, solar calculator etc.
At the moment, the girls dormitories are being renovated. We are cooperating with an association from Belgium, who took care of roof and walls. And we will provide electricty, LED lights and plugs based on a solar/battery installation.
With the pandemic we had to delay our plans to build the solar ferry in 2021. This gives us more time to collect the remaining funds (mainly for the solar panels) to then be able to go into production in Spring of 2022.
