Abstract

This project, sponsored by the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia, aimed to create a pilot program to provide Pico Solar Home Systems to students without sufficient access to light in the informal settlements of Windhoek, Namibia. Working with various organizations and the Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School we created a selection process, installation and monitoring procedures, and a way in which to evaluate the impacts the systems have on students.
