There is no electricity on the property of the Youth Achievers International (YAI) children's home. Once the sun goes down it is pitch black making it impossible to complete any tasks or even to get up to go to the bathroom! The installation of solar panels would be beneficial not only to the daily life of the residents of YAI, but also to the security of the property.
The newly installed solar panels have changed the lives of the children at YAI. They now, for the first time, have experienced the welcoming glow of a well-lit home after the sun sets! The solar panels also provide electricity to the outdoor lights on the property, providing greater security for the grounds. These panels also allow cell phones and laptops to be charged on site, instead of having to commute to town, spending money on gas and charging them in a cafe, which aids in running YAI more efficiently.
