September is a busy month at the Kakenya Center for Excellence. In addition to the end of the August holiday, the new month also brings an exciting solar installation project to campus (see below) from our partners at We Care Solar (hyperlink https://wecaresolar.org/ ) , a San Francisco, CA-based organization that supports the We Share Solar Suitcase project.

Each suitcase, built by student volunteers in the U.S., provides easy-to-use, safe and durable solar electricity systems to schools and orphanages in rural communities without reliable power. Consistent, reliable energy is essential for our girls to study and socialize safely after dark. Before partnering with We Share Solar, our girls would often go hours or even days without lights in their dormitories, dining hall and classrooms. We are thrilled to welcome our new partners and this sustainable and dependable energy source to our campus!
