Summary: This school was built in 1965, training an average of 250 students per year for a 4 year secondary education after primary (elementary) school. The sections are general education, masonry, electricity, clothing industry, family and social studies. About 50 students live in the school campus. There is acute power shortage, less than 3 hours a day, 2-4 days a week randomly. Sometimes can go a month without electricity. The 3kVA generator is too costly and do not support all the electrical loads. With the solar system, the students will study better at night, and have more meaningful practical sessions and labs (especially in electricity section). The hope is to raise the current success rate from 60% to close to above 90%.
