The need

Electriciens sans frontières has been approached by several associations for the electrification of two schools and a Health and Social Promotion Centre in three villages in Burkina Faso

The response

Electriciens sans frontières is installing solar power stations capable of supplying buildings in a reliable and sustainable manner. For Pissila: Electrification of four classrooms, a courtyard and the teachers’ room. For Sakou: Electrification of three classes in the primary school, the women’s handicraft room and installation of a charging station for batteries. For Tensobetengo: Electrification of the three buildings of the health centre (Centre de Santé et de Promotion Sociale (CSPS)) and installation of a charging station for batteries.

The aim

The main objective of this project is to contribute to the improvement of the conditions of access to care and education for the inhabitants of the three villages.

Good practices

In order to ensure the sustainability of the project, Electriciens Sans Frontières forms a technical team for the operation and maintenance of the installations and a battery rental activity will be set up to finance maintenance.
