BBI fully-funds Solar Power project at Kanyenze - in one day

Posted: Sat, July 08, 2017 | By: Kanyenze Humanist School



​Brighter Brains Institute successfully raised $500 in one day (July 7, 2017) to fund installation of a solar electrical system in Kanyenze village.

Kanyenze is the location of multiple BBI projects: 1) Kanyenze Humanist Primary School, 2) Kanyenze Humanist Girls Orphanage, 3) the Atheist Community of San Jose Clinic, 4) the Bob Pellissier Motorcycle Repair Garage, 5) a clean water system - 7 kilometer pipeline - installed with funds from Davida LeComte.

The solar electric system will allow Kanyenze children to study at night, plus it can be used to operate computers and appliances.

Below is a photo of a solar cell phone charger - provided to Kanyenze from Piedmont High School physics students. The cell phone charger was delivered by BBI members who visited Kanyenze in June 2017.
