Solar power comes to Kafuro thanks to the children of Liss Junior School

Yesterday, Kafuro Primary School (our twinned school in Uganda) installed solar panels after children at Liss Junior School raised over £1000 through the sale of ice pops over the academic year.

This is hugely significant for both schools. For the first time, Kafuro has electricity which will enable them to access new forms of learning and also to open the school into the evening for extended study. The school is also intending to let local businesses use the facility out of school hours: a local barber has agreed to give the children free haircuts in return for using the premises.

For Liss Junior School (in addition to the warm fuzzy feeling we have for helping our friends and promoting a clean form of energy) this means that we have removed another big barrier to regular communication between the schools and created further opportunities for the children to share their learning.
