Electricity is part of the infrastructure Tek4Kids provides in our partner schools. Reliable electricity is essential in order to provide a functioning water purification system. Providing the necessary infrastructure at Montfort School posed a challenge since is located quite a distance from our other partner schools and is difficult to reach due to steep, rough roads.
Tek4Kids installed 12 golf cart batteries at Montfort, which are used specifically to run the water system and to keep the electricity on during blackout periods. In 2014, Tek4Kids routed electricity into the principal’s office to allow teachers and the principal access to the electricity when students are not at school, giving staff time to work on their lesson plans for their classes.
