Today was the first lesson in building solar panels. We had a power point, some theory and then started right in. The lessons went from English (Rich), to French (me) to Hausa, (Ahar), which both Tuareg and Wodaabe speak.
But very soon progressed to hands on work. Within a couple of hours they had successfully tested cells connected for a battery charger. Tomorrow they will seal up the panel and start on some larger ones to power a small house and a pump.
While mom was soldering a panel…
baby was playing in a bucket. It is so hot, I was jealous it was not big enough for me!
