Great Hope Group's story

Beatrice, who stands second from the right dressed in bright orange, owns a small school. In her spare time, Beatrice loves sewing. She and her husband are also farmers. They have 11 children, four of whom are still in school. The others are all married.

What she likes most about her school is teaching children. She hopes to be able to grow her school, but her challenge is that the children often fail to pay their tuition on time.

She wants to buy a home energy system, with solar lights, phone charging and a cook stove with a yearly subscription of pellet fuel. Instead of using candles and firewood, her family will be able to use the stove and solar lamps that provide better and healthier cooking and lighting conditions.
