    Unleashing a plentiful Ugandan resource

    Day 206

    Shining Bright

    In Uganda, there is an abundance of sun. That means that things warm up quickly. But it also means that there’s plenty of solar power to unleash.

    This works out perfectly for us because the electricity at the mosque has been out for, well forever.

    Enter the power of the sun.

    At the mosque they have no way to power their lights inside or outside, so a brand-new solar panel is the perfect option.

    This also works perfectly to get their new loud speaker running for calls to prayer.

    The possibilities that a solar panel unlocks are infinite! Another simple solution to a problem that impacts families in a huge way.
