WHAT DO SOME OF OUR TRAINEES HAVE TO SAY?
- Wamugera Arnold, Technician from Watoto Childcare Ministries
I obtained skills in solar and now I can boldly educate my children on solar with all the skills obtained from the training
- Gerald Sekiti Sona, Sustainability Engineer from Watoto Childcare Ministries
I had never thought that I could acquire so much knowledge in just a very short period of time. I experienced a great achievement of knowledge, skills, expertise, and priceless attitude and passion towards solar energy. The Trainers and all involved administrators were wonderful, hospitable and approachable, which gave us the best environment and atmosphere to learn. Altogether, it was a wonderful experience.
Most of the questions I had regarding solar power, were answered. The topic of sizing was magical, and ever since then, most of the people I have helped to setup solar power for their homes have greatly appreciated. Right now, people keep looking for me to either join their teams or advise and work on their solar plans.
- Jackson Mutegeki, Lecturer at Nyabyeya Forestry College
Good training, I liked the practical sessions. The training gave me skills and knowledge that helps me to efficiently exercise my duties as a lecturer, since better trained lecturers produce high quality graduates, leading to a world class system.
