Choma Community Day Secondary School has been chosen as the site of the pilot SolarBerry in Malawi. It is in a rural area about 20km North of Mzuzu.
The SolarBerry will support learning for 250 students and about 1000 adult learners.
The Centre for Youth and Development and Turing Trust team have held meetings with the local community leaders who are fully supportive of the project and committed to both school and community use, with computer classes for adults and movie nights in the evenings to generate income.
Our goal is to ensure that the SolarBerry can generate sufficient income within the community to be sustainable and support education and learning in Choma for many years to come.
If you are interested in supporting the development of further SolarBerries, whether this is financially or in any other way, then we would appreciate your support. If you would like to find out more about this project, then do contact us.
