Creating Impact Through Technology
Since our beginning in 2007, the MCM Center has operated without conventional electrical power. This is a reality in rural Malawi – electricity is scarce.
While we have minimal solar power for the exclusive use of pumping fresh water, the lack of power directly effects our ability to provide adequate nutrition, healthcare and education.
The MCM medical room needs lighting and a refrigeration unit. Our teachers and social workers require better tools to teach children and reach the community. Communications is hampered by inconsistent cellular coverage. The computer lab requires a consistent source of power for re-charging laptops. Security of the center needs to be enhanced with flood lighting.
Solar Power is a Bright Idea
Solar Power Systems can harness the abundance of solar energy available right at the Center to provide electrical power. The benefits are exponential.
Consistent and reliable power will improve medical services and enhance security on the MCM campus.
Solar power will enable satellite-based access to the information and educational content needed to enrich and enhance the children’s learning experience.
Broadband Internet access will allow better communications between MCM Academy and USA-based school classes as part of our Global Classroom initiative and further develop synchronistic, project-based learning.
Partners are Needed
To address these needs, we are raising $25,000, with a goal of purchasing and implementing these tools in Q1, 2019. As part of MCM’s long-term Technology & Infrastructure Plan, this investment will enable us to deploy:
Invest in Their Future
All of us take electricity, lighting and Internet access for granted – imagine how much it could do for young children.
Please join us in using these simple technologies for a greater good. Your donation will help us leverage solar and satellite technology to improve the lives of Malawi’s orphans.
Thank you for your support.
