In a first phase, the Foundation installed 14 solar panels and now has installed 14 more so that the disadvantaged families of the town of Nakaseke can have access to electricity.
Nakaseke, a village located 60 kilometers from the capital Kampala, is an area with great difficulties to have Access to a need as basic as electricity. Currently, the poorest families live with paraffin lamps, of short duration, and very dangerous for children because of the risk of fire.
As soon as we knew this reality, the Barceló Foundation signed an agreement with the NGO Acces Uganda to subsidize the purchase and installation of 14 solar panels in the town of Nakaseke. In this way, and with an investment of just over 2,000 euros, 14 families in the area had electricity for the most elementary tasks of their daily life.
Due to the success of the project, the Foundation approved a second phase where 14 more panels have been installed and therefore, the number of beneficiary families has been increased to 28, thus improving the quality of life and health of those who need it most.
