A total of 87 households from Talawonchele number one and Dangnaateng communities all in the Wa West District of the Upper West Region have been provided with solar lanterns to aid their education and domestic activities.
The solar lanterns were provided to the communities by a Wa-based Non-Governmental Organisation known as SociaLite as part of its philanthropic moves.
The installation process which was done on Sunday, December 19, 2021, is part of the NGO’s effort to provide mini-grid lighting systems to rural communities that are not connected to the national grid.
The community solar lighting system is made up of rechargeable lanterns, phone charging slots together with non-compulsory sound and video equipment.
It took about a day for the team to install the panel for the households in all the two farming communities.
The solar lanterns provided, according to the beneficiaries will change their daily activities as they will no longer travel far in search of places to charge their mobile phones, and school-going children will now have access to light to study at night comfortably.
They were grateful to SociaLite for the gesture
