Siddheswor Health Clinic is a new facility. Construction was completed in June 2014, but when the SunFarmer Team arrived, Siddheswor had only a few hours of low quality grid energy per day.
We held a meeting attended by 21 community members and formed a 5-person "Solar Power Task Force Committee" to maintain the solar systems.
Region Population: 3 Million

"Snakes are an issue during the rainy season and without lighting the patients and staff are sometimes afraid to go to the clinic at night. Solar powered light will ensure that people feel safe going to the clinic."
