Project 54 E – Solar panels for the centre for disabled children

Location:             Nyacyonga, district Gasabo

Project leadtime: 1 month

Requestor:          Jeanne Mutuyimana on behalf of Jya Mu Bandi Mwana

Description of the project:

As the construction of the centre makes it ready to welcome the children an extra stable source of energy is needed. As the electricity net is not always stable one opted for the installation of solar panels.


  • Continuous availability of electricity to offer the children a safe home, by always having light available (also after 18h00 and before 06h00)
  • Offering sufficient electricity needed for the technical skills trainings which will start in January 2017
  • Decrease the daily costs by using less electricity from the net


267 disabled children at Jya Mu Bandi Mwana


The total budget for the purchase and installation of the solar panels is 15.252.200 RwFr, being 17.400 €.
