Africa – Solar Powered Internet School.
Around the world there are hundreds of millions of people that do not have access to electricity at all and many more that only have it for brief periods or when diesel fuel is available and the generator is functional. What this means is the these people do not have light to read with or internet with which to to learn or do business.
In Africa and now some other parts of the world, Samsung has been locating these small shipping container sized school rooms that have internet connections plus computer all powered from the sun. These self contained classroom can be easily shipped on the ocean, rail or roads and even air lifted into remote areas.
Imagine what a difference this can make in a child’s life and what it might mean for their future possibilities!
The Prospect Of A Solar Powered Internet School.
Solar pv panels provide clean electricity to power the internet and charge the computing devices. Wifi calling also makes it possible to have phone access where none may have existed before.
Great job Samsung!
More companies need to show this kind of humanity based innovation.
