Solar technology is a leading technology of the future, making it imperative that the next generation both learn and embrace renewable energy. Leading the way in education for solar power is Imeela, organizing solar installation programs in Nigeria. Their work is not only empowering the small village, but is putting forth the groundwork for future sites as well.
Imeela’s current workshop at Nkwerre High School, imo State is giving students the education for not only today but the future as well. Teaching them how to build, maintain and repair solar installations is a segue into countless possibilities. Teaching these children the skills needed to maintain and install solar systems is a solution they might not have had otherwise.
Empowering the children of Nigeria with the vocational skills to start a service startup, Imeela.com knows the future of the children at Nkwerre is that much brighter. But Imeela can’t do it alone, and they’ve got their sights set on expanding their skills course. This comprehensive skill program will include enrichening programs such as bakery & catering services, make-up artist, technicians, fashion designers, shoe-makers, ICT support and much more.
How you Can Help with Education
Although the solar program in Nigeria is well underway, Imeela.com needs your help for long-term viability. With your help and generous contributions of expert knowledge, Imeela can continue to build a sustainable energy resource in Nigeria.
Together with Engr. Julian Igbo, a member of European Energy Center and International Green Apple Award Winner 2014, Imeela is spearheading solar education and renewable sources of energy. Because the skill program is still small in size, your generous contributions will make a tremendous impact.
