Village Health Works, in Kigutu, Burundi, is in the midst of a multi-year program to become a premiere teaching/health care facility. SELF is leading a project to provide Village Health Works with a solar power system for the current and future electricity needs. SunEPI is providing consulting, installation, and training services to SELF's program. Village Health Works started seeing patients on an outpatient basis in December, 2007, and their building program is well under way. Village Health Works is not on the electric grid and depends on solar/diesel hybrid systems to power its facility.

Please read this letter from Dr. Dziwe Ntaba to find out first-hand how solar has helped improve the quality of life in Kigutu.
