Martha and John, once refugees, returned to serve the people of Liberia.
Project: To build and install a solar power system for a computer laboratory that will be used to conduct computer skill training for the community of Zubah Town.
Martha and her husband John, both SIFAT graduates, serve in Zubah Town, a community of about 12,000-15,000 people. There is no computer school in the area, and many Liberian youth graduate high school and even college without computer knowledge and skills. Within the last few years, SIFAT supporters helped to build a computer room with about 15 desktop computers. With the high gasoline consumption rate of the generator power supply, sustaining the computer school has not been possible, especially when fees must be affordable for the community and students of Frontline Christian Academy. Therefore, there is a need to install a renewable solar energy system that will run for at least eight hours daily, if needed. The project includes solar panels and batteries for power storage. This new solar powered system will provide a reliable source of power with the ability to expand capacity and to meet computer system growth, while maintaining costs within a workable level avoiding the high gasoline costs currently used to drive a electrical power generator.
