Title: Facing the Future in Argentina
Electricity is not available everywhere in Argentina. There are about 1800 schools without current, so the students cannot be educated properly. Likewise many households are without electric power. Women have to gather wood in order to cook. The smoke caused by open fire also has adverse health effects. The aim of the project is to install solar systems that supply electricity. The project also provides the opportunity for residents to learn how to use, install and maintain these solar panels. The Facing the Future project also designed affordable solar panels.
