Project Description
The Gaza Strip has been suffering from a chronic deficit in electricity since 2006. Around 2 million people are living on less than 8 hours of electricity a day as a result of the 61% electricity deficit. Several alternatives, including the use of generators, were initiated to overcome electricity shortages, particularly in hospitals and schools.
The Gaza Strip has an average of 320 days of sunshine a year, making renewable energy an ideal option. In addressing the needs of the energy sector in Gaza.

In partnership with UWT intend to provide a sustainable energy source through the installation of solar panels in one of these two Islamic schools in Gaza.

Al Tabeen and Fatima Al-Zahraa Islamic Schools are two of the 398 schools in the Gaza Strip currently affected by the electricity crisis. Since 2006, Gaza has been facing chronic electrical shortages, exacerbated by the most recent crisis in Gaza, which damaged related infrastructure and Gaza’s sole power plant.
