Wamba Luadi School of Nursing

The Wamba Luadi School of Nursing contacted the EKI Foundation in 2021 to request a solar installation, as the school did not have access to electricity. After many delays due to logistical difficulties, the system was launched in 2023, which will allow the school to have 24-hour electricity. The school also has dormitories for students.

The school is located in the Kwango province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is a rural area that lacks large infrastructures which makes the development of the area very difficult. The region does not have access to the electricity grid and the supply of fuel for the generator set is very difficult and expensive due to the complicated logistics required.



  • NGO: l'ITM Wamba-Luadi
  • Service: Light and electricity 24/7
  • Impact: 20 students
  • PV Instalation: 6 panels (2.73 kWp) and lithium batteries (12 kWh)
  • Social Impact: improved quality of education



The execution of this project has been possible thanks to the extraordinary efforts of Father F. Prado, a Jesuit originally from Guatemala who has dedicated himself to accompanying and serving these communities for more than 50 years.

The local electrician Fidele also carried out the electrical installation of the school buildings, installing the bulbs and plugs.
