The new grid has a solar panel, battery, controller, and underground wires going to all the homes and corrals. There are lights throughout and a phone charger in each home.
We are very happy with this grid. It represents the informed cooperation that occurs when the community and the Project are linked as collaborators, working for a better life.
The location of this boma is very special. It is right along the principal road taken by all tourists going to the great wildlife parks. It is visible to all government cars and commercial transport moving along the main road across north-central Tanzania.
It is a remarkable sight. Every evening and throughout the night, the boma transmits the news:
life can be better
when work and resources are used to meet real needs.
