El Obeid, 13 August, 2022 / 5:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB) are empowering young people in Sudan with skills in the field of renewable energy.
In a Tuesday, August 9 report, the Salesians say training students enrolled in the course of electricity at St. Joseph Vocational Training Center in Khartoum is important in solving power outages in the Northeastern African country.
“Power outages of 10 hours a day can occur in Sudan; so solar energy is a key alternative to this problem, as well as making a very positive contribution to the environment. Currently, renewable energy is booming in the country,” the report indicates.
In the report, SDB members say, “We were able to adapt the students’ education to the realities and challenges of our society, and to offer quality education that serves to improve the employability of our young people, and to achieve a dignified life for them and their families.”
“In addition, thanks to the use of this natural source, we also saved on resources, bringing a higher quality of life to all those who attend the educational complex,” they say about the solar energy training initiative that the Bosco Global, Magone Foundation, and the Provincial Council of Huesca supported.
