2015 KIS Grants – Solar Panels for Eastlands College of Technology

The Kenya Irish Society provided a grant of 140,000KES to the Strathmore Educational Trust (Eastlands College of Technology) to assist in the installation of Solar Panels so that lighting could be provided at the College of Technology. This will help the primary school children and the underprivileged youth that attend the college.

Over the first two weeks of July 2015 a team comprising Electronics students form the college as well as students from Xabec Technical college in Spain worked to complete the project. At the end, five solar panels were installed on the roof and were connected to the inverters and batteries to provide lighting.

In total, over 250 children and youth who attend the college will benefit from the completion of this work.
