A Bible School in southeast Ambrym needs a solar light for its students to read and study at night so that they can improve their academic performances.
The remote school has a generator that provides electricity but the cost of operating it is very expensive, said Principal Taho James.
Principal James took the opportunity to raise a small money when he came for a workshop in Port Vila recently. He came with a tick-a-box form and was asking people to fill it up after detailing how the money will be used.
He did not make big money but he believe it’s a start to meet the student’s lighting needs.
The principal said they (the school) also need support to build a dining hall where their students can enjoy their meal together.
He said they have two water tanks but one of the main problem everyone on Ambrym is struggling with every day is acid rain from Marum and Benbow volcanoes.
Located in southeast Ambrym, the Bible School accommodate 40 students mainly from Ambrym. The school is managed under the jurisdiction of the Presbyterian Church of Vanuatu since 2014.
