Saint Joseph of Lhanguene TVET Center
In collaboration with the EKI Foundation and the Salesians of Mozambique, the NGO Jóvenes y Desarrollo has carried out the project "Promotion of environmental sustainability in Mozambique through training and implementation of photovoltaic energy installations". This project has been funded by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID).
The project aims to promote environmental sustainability in Mozambique through the use of renewable energy, while providing employment opportunities for young people in the emerging field of photovoltaic energy. This specialization has started in three centers of the Salesian Vocational Training Network in Maputo (Matola Vocational Center, San José de Lhanguene and Instituto Superior Don Bosco), training at least 75 young people.
- NGO: Jóvenes y Desarrollo, Salesians of Don Bosco
- Service: Electricity and power supply 24/7
- Impact: Students of the center
- PV Installation: 24 panels (10.92 kWp) and lithium batteries (15 kWh)
- Social Impact: improvement in the quality of education
EKI provided support in the procurement and installation of the equipment for the photovoltaic vocational training laboratory at this center, as well as in the design and supervision of the solar installation. Both trainers and students played an active role in the implementation of the solar system as an essential part of their practical training. It should be noted that the equipment was purchased and assembled in collaboration with the local company Logos Industries.
