Donation of Solar Lanterns
On the 29th March, 2019 Yoshihisa Ohno, Chairman of First Access, Japan, facilitated the donation of 44 solar lanterns to Patmos School. Twenty of these lanterns were for distribution to children at the school and the remaining 24 were donated to families in the Headmaster’s home region of Mount Elgon in Kenya.
Headmaster Richard Wanjala Manya was responsible for overseeing the distribution of the lanterns and the selection of the recipient children and families.
The recipient families in the remote Mount Elgon region were very happy with this initiative from First Access. Their children are now benefiting from the donation of solar lanterns which will enable them to do their home-work at night.
Over the last few years First Access have been supporting Patmos School with donations of solar lanterns and in March of 2018 they facilitated a visit to the school by international camerawoman Amelia Lee together with members of First Access.
