Tunbridge Wells Lions kindly provided funding in May for the Aquinoe Learning Centre to buy a generator so that the school would be able to have some power when the mains electricity fails.
We now have a photograph of the generator and information about its usage.
It uses diesel and is located behind the resource centre so that it will not disturb teachers and pupils during the day when classes are running as it can be quite noisy.
The local electricity supply often fails when there is rain. In recent weeks there has been much rain, so the generator has been put to good use as there have been frequent blackouts.
The farmers are usually harvesting their crops at this time of year so the rain has been devastating for them as their crops are rotting in the fields.
It is hoped that a switch will be purchased so that the generator will be started automatically if the main supply fails, but this is not available in Kitale. At the moment Morris or Meshack switch it on manually.
The generator can light five classrooms, the two dormitories and the office.
