Electrical wiring with the South Granville Rotary Club

As electricity finally makes it to the most remote communities of San Ramón, there is a growing need for proper electrical installations in schools. It is not uncommon to see very dangerous makeshift electrical systems in schools that put children at risk of electrocution. When the South Granville Rotary Club offered their expertise in electrical repairs, we knew we had a lot of work for them to do in San Ramón!

In March 2019, we completed our third electrical project with the South Granville Rotary Club: wiring three schools in the rural communities of El Carrizo, San Juan, and Sabana Grande. This time, they trained six young people during the installation, and after the project was over, they covered the cost for the participants to complete a technical training in electrical installations in the national technical school, INATEC. You can read more about it on our blog.

We’re looking forward to continuing to work with the South Granville Rotary for many years to come! If you’re interested in learning more, please contact us!
