SND PHOTOVOLTAIC PROJECT: ‘POWER OF THE SUN’ IS COMING TO THE UNITED NATIONS

Photovoltaic ProjectIn 2005, we Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur initiated a Solar Energy Program in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Nigeria to improve the lives of our sisters and the people they serve. With solar powered energy now operative at six sites, many gains have been experienced. All sites have access to power and clean water. Health Centers explore up-to-date medical procedures, and students and teachers broaden their scope of learning through solar powered satellite internet. http://www.sndden.org/sisters-of-notre-dame-de-namur-pvproject.html

On February 6, 2012, we will be offering a side event during the UN Commission on Social Development to share about our ground-breaking Photovoltaic Project. Our presentation will provide important project information to governments and other NGOs. Featured speakers will be Sister Lorraine Connell, Project Coordinator; Sisters Claudine Dumbi and Lucie Kima, onsite experiences in Congo; and Sister Kristin Hokanson, on the project’s global impact through technology.
