Installing electricity at Tek4Kids' partner schools lays the groundwork for the water purification systems, since it is necessary to operate the pumps. The inverter system allows electricity to be stored when city electric is functioning and uses golf cart batteries otherwise. For prolonged outages, a generator is the back-up electricity source.
Other benefits of installing electrical networks at Tek4Kids' partner schools are enhancing the quality of instruction and supporting the schools' administration. Computer labs, wireless networks, and lights are all powered with reliable electricity, improving the students' learning environment and experience. Depending on each school's needs, security can also be enhanced with light bulbs and evening classes can be offered for adult students.
Before Tek4Kids came to Montfort, our electricity was unreliable. Now the kids have lights during meal time so they can see what they are eating and they can do their homework.
