BSP delivers Community Projects in rural schools

Wednesday, June 8, 2022

Blackout and power outage will no longer disrupt classes or printing of materials for classes at Lealea Primary School, thanks to BSP’s 2022 Community Project.

BSP Haus Branch lit up the school’s four double story classrooms with a Solar Generator set and installed solar powered streetlights around the school’s campus.

BSP Haus Branch Manager Rawalo Rawalo and his team handed over the project to the school’s 500 plus students and its 16 teaching staff on Tuesday 7th June, 2022, appealing to the community and the school to look after the facilities. “I hope that through our contribution today, it will make a meaningful and lasting change in the lives of people in our communities,” Mr Rawalo said.

Lealea Primary School Head Mistress Ranu Lari in thanking BSP for choosing their school said the solar streetlights have lit up their school, giving it an urban look at night.

She explained that while the school has electricity connected, it could not power the entire school. “Words cannot express how thankful we are with this gift from BSP because someone from out there who does not know where the school is located, and does not know how many students attend the school cannot just come and said ‘I’m giving you this.’

“This is a blessing. Thank you very much BSP for your assistance, for your gift. Even though we will experience blackouts or heavy rains, we are still going to operate because of the generator you have given, so thank you,” Mrs Lari added.
