Sana’a girls’ school completes month-long renovations
Twenty classrooms were repaired in addition to installing a new electrical system, a new water network, nine latrines, windows, doors, repainting walls and renovating the school compound, including a stage, volleyball court, football field and bleachers.
The repairs included the installment of a power generation system that transfers solar energy into electric energy using solar panels. The goal is that solar panels can aid the school in accessing electricity during the power cuts.
These green technologies will be addressed in the school curricula so students learn about the green efforts in water, sanitation and gas. Secretary of the Capital Abdulqader Helal said he appreciated USAID efforts in Yemen.
“We are happy to receive this work, repairing an educational edifice that represents a form of cooperation between Yemen and the U.S,” Helal said.
Since May 2012, USAID has helped renovate 44 schools.
