- NGO: Salesians of Don Bosco
- Service: Light and electricity 24/7
- Impact: 1000 students
- PV Instalation: school: 96 panels (47.04 kWp) and lithium batteries (61.6 kWh); community: 48 panels (23.52 kWp) and lithium batteries (46.2 kWh)
- Social Impact: improvement of the center's activity
Frequent power outages in this area of Burundi led the center to contact the EKI Foundation to request a solar installation that would allow safe and continuous use of the school's equipment and offices. In the end, it was decided to build two separate installations: the larger one covers the needs of the high school, and the smaller one is responsible for powering the offices and the rest of the community buildings.
