YOVENCO Organization, in close partnership with Plan International, has provided 500 solar lamps to school girls in off-grid rural villages in the Togdheer region, Somaliland. The girls come from some of the most vulnerable families in the region, and many of them live in areas without access to electricity. The solar lamps will allow the girls to study and do their homework after dark, which will help them to improve their academic performance.
The solar lamps were distributed to girls in seven villages in Togdheer region, which are the target locations of the Education in Emergency Project supported by Plan International. The villages are all located in remote areas and do not have access to reliable electricity. As a result, many of the girls in these villages are unable to study after dark. The solar lamps will provide these girls with a safe and reliable source of light, which will allow them to continue their education.
“We are very happy to provide these solar lamps to the girls in these villages,” said a spokesperson for YOVENCO. “We know that these lamps will make a real difference in the lives of these girls and help them to achieve their full potential.”
In sum, the provision of solar lamps to these girls is a significant step forward in improving access to education in rural Togdheer Region in Somaliland. The solar lamps will allow these girls to study after dark and improve their academic performance. This will help them to break the cycle of poverty and build a better future for themselves and their families.
