Bringing Electricity to the School

Mains electricity is gradually being supplied to even the most remote areas of The Gambia, by the nationalised utility company. Sohm village was connected to the grid a couple of years ago. But because the school is about half a mile off the beaten track, cabling was not extended to the school.

So, it is dependent on generators, for electricity to fire up the wood and metal workshops, as well as the science laboratories and the developing computer classes. This is unsatisfactory, costly and unreliable.

We are working with the principal and Regional Director of Education to put pressure on the electricity company to extend the reach of their supply, to include the school.
