The lack of electricity supply in health centres results in poor health infrastructure.
In the Afar region , towns have been growing on nomad settlements. The Ethiopian state and the Afar government have installed health stations to provide basic healthcare when this population (depending on their livestock herds) comes back to setup camps. However, the electricity is scarce and vaccins hard to preserve.
The project aims to improve health services by providing electricity to 30 health centres equipping them with photovoltaic solar panels with batteries.
Furthermore, 2 solar pumps with a storage tank will be installed. In order to ensure the self-sufficiency of the project, 8 local technicians will be trained to install and maintain the material.
