Solar panels in Chad

The sun will illuminate the future of the youth of N’Djamena, in Chad. Thanks to a project funded by the MAGIS Foundation, some solar panels will be installed on the roof of the Loyola Cultural Centre (LCC). These, thanks to the continuous solar irradiation of those latitudes, will provide electricity to the facility throughout the day. A decisive step towards a greater ecological sensitivity and a lower impact on the environment.

The solar panels will also guarantee the possibility of carrying on the activities of the Centre. The LCC has been offering for years integral training paths to boys and girls. An integral (and increasingly important) part of these paths is information technology. In the classrooms, computers connected to the Internet are available to those attending the Centre. Over time, these PCs have become obsolete. Therefore, MAGIS, in addition to financing the installation of the panels, will also support the purchase of eight new computers and their connection to the Internet.

“Thanks to this project – explains Joe Alpha Lindjo, Jesuit, director of the Centre -, we will be able to offer young people the possibility of having a secure, continuous connection to the Web, powered by electricity from renewable sources. I would also recall that the project involves restructuring the spaces in front of the Centre. This work will make the area more attractive thus allowing us to rent it. This will guarantee us revenues that will enable us to sustain, at least in part, the costs of our activities “.
