The electric current in the children’s home comes and goes and often fails altogether. A weak light bulb can be lit with it, but not even in all the rooms. Life outside basically happens in the dark. When darkness has fallen it’s even dangerous to be outside, because there are scorpions, snakes and other animals you might run into – literally, which can be a horrible experience when you’re barefoot.
That’s why we thought we might install solar panels. Again, with the help of our volunteers, but we still need 1,500 € for material.
