In 2016, the Garden Club of Princeton, New Jersey, headed by Gigi Goldman (originally from Minneapolis, MN) generously assembled and donated a solar suitcase system for the Birth Waiting Home (Mbao-mi Mothers’ Home). It was officially installed in January 2018 after completing the construction of the Mbao-mi Mothers’ Home.
The solar suitcase will light the kitchen and the area where the security staff are posted. Additionally, it will provide charging for cell phones and flashlights to be used at the home. The solar panel is mounted high on two metal poles for maximum exposure to the tropical sun.

Thank you, Garden Club of Princeton, New Jersey!
