Info about the Pibaore Solar Panel Project

The CSPS of Pibaoré, in association with the COGES of the CSPS, and the community at large, would like to install solar panels in both the maternity and dispensary. Having solar panels will provide lights for both buildings and will run a refridgerator at the maternity. this will allow the CSPS to better, and much more safely, treat the sick patients and pregnant women who arrive after dark. Moveover, it will allow any sick patients or expecting mothers the ease of having lights while in the hospitalization rooms. The refridgerator will hold the vaccines for the center, keeping them cold and at the desired temperatures.

Partnership funds will be used to assist in the purchase of the solar panels. The community will be making a 25% cash contribution.
