Together with Knightsbridge International and Border Green Energy Team (BGET), we have several ongoing projects on the Thai/Burma border, and in Burma. In 2003, we started a program to equip the mobile health clinics of the Karen people in Burma with small solar systems. Since then, we have provided training and equipment to 35 of the mobile health clinics in the Karen State.  In 2007, we expanded our reach to Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) and referral clinics with much larger systems. BURMA HOSPITAL REPORT.  This reach has only grown further.


2008 was an ambitious and successful year.  That fall, we provided training and solar systems for the Free Burma Rangers (FBR) medical and human rights training facility. FBR outfits over 40 mobile health teams and provides medical services to five ethnic groups currently the target of ethnic cleansing in Burma. For more information: FREE BURMA RANGERS REPORT.  During this trip, we were also able to work with World Aid in powering a communications facility near the Thai/Burma border, thanks to a generous donation of panels from AEE Solar and Solar Energy International.

This year in 2009 our project included the provision of energy services for two more clinics, and an exciting new project – the provision of energy for a computer training center. For more information: BURMA REPORT 2009

 

The people in this area recognize that despite the continuous oppression and abuse,  in order to equip their youth with the skills necessary to help their people, they need to have the educational advantages that come with a computer training center.  We provided energy systems to equip the very first such center in the Karen State of Eastern Burma.  The energy will support the continuous use of 12 computers that will be used train upper level students in a variety of skills that are needed in this area. 


In addition to the solar systems, Knightsbridge supports the supply of much needed medical supplies and equipment

to theses areas. Additionally, through Knightsbridge, we are able to provide training in specific areas of medical

expertise needed by the medics there.


For our hopeful project in 2010, there are numerous candidates that require energy. For more information: FUNDING BURMA
