Without electricity, midwives in Somaliland are forced to make treatment decisions without the benefit of basic diagnostic tools such as a Fetal Doppler, a heartbeat monitor. The addition of a solar charged battery to power these tools allows the midwives to provide safe, appropriate and timely medical care to rural, nomadic and drought affected communities; decreasing infant and maternal mortality.
For the Maasai community and students of Esiteti Primary School solar is the only source of power. Solar Chargers will greatly benefit the students by allowing them to use recently introduced tablets at the school. Keeping tablets and other powered school supplies up and running will be an essential part of the students’ educational experience and focus.
