Jean-Claude & Joyce - Setting up PowerProject Updates RSS


Project Code: MLma105

The power system in Malawi is unreliable due to increasing demands and a lack of infrastructure investment. This means that power is out for at least 16 hours a day and the maximum eight hours it is available is intermittent! This project provides a battery or inverter system and solar panels for the house where Jean-Claude and Joyce and their family live since arriving in Malawi at the end of 2018.

Having access to electricity, which we so easily take for granted, makes a significant difference for long-term well-being through simply enabling the family to carry out daily household tasks. Additionally, the presence of consistent light greatly increases security and decreases the risk of  break-ins!

Supporting this project provides a reliable source of power for Jean-Claude and Joyce to better care for their well-being, enable them to do their day-today tasks and provide greater security for their family.
