Solar Panels for Alsama in the Shatila and Bourj camps

A couple of months ago our students began sitting in the dark because of Lebanon’s electricity crises. We decided to turn the crises into an opportunity to problem solve. For a week in the Maths, English and Arabic classes our students discussed and searched for alternatives to electricity – in Maths they calculated watts needed and funding required, in Arabic they researched who might be willing to help and in English they wrote letters to potential sponsors. And this is the beautiful result.

Thank you to the global trading company Montfort who funded our solar panels.
