Electricity outages are commom in Bamako, Mali. The Orphelinat Niaber has an eletric water pump which is currently in disrepair. Before it broke down it could only be used when there was electricity. We are researching a way to retrofit their electrical water pump with solar energy. In the interim, we showed them how to harvest rain water from the roof top of the founder’s home. Here the young women who care for the orphans are bringing harvested rain water to the orphanage.
