Malaita, Solomon Islands – The Mala-I-Tolo Indigenous Guardianship Trust has announced the successful installation of a 1.4 KVA solar power system at Faumamanu Community High School. This significant development aims to provide clean and sustainable energy to the school, facilitating the operation of a trust-funded computer lab that offers free internet access to students.

The solar power installation is a cornerstone of the school’s IT Hub, a project financed by the Mala-I-Tolo Trust. This initiative is set to revolutionize the educational landscape at Faumamanu by enhancing digital literacy and technological proficiency among students, thereby contributing to their overall academic growth.

Mr. Patterson Legana, Deputy Principal of Faumamanu School, expressed heartfelt gratitude towards the Mala-I-Tolo Trust for their invaluable support. He highlighted the unprecedented nature of this assistance, emphasizing its crucial role in the school’s development. “This initiative is the first of its kind for our school and provides opportunities that were previously beyond our reach,” he stated.

David Subu, Moderator of Mala-I-Tolo, expressed enthusiasm about collaborating with the school administration to launch the Mala-I-Tolo programs. He extended thanks to the school and community for their unwavering support. “In today’s world, technology is essential for our children’s education,” Subu remarked. “Introducing technology in senior secondary schools is vital for students to learn basic computer skills and the essential tools of Microsoft.”

The Mala-I-Tolo Trust’s efforts extend beyond Faumamanu School. Similar support, including internet service and laptops, is being provided to several other schools in Malaita Province. These include Rokera School, Dala Community High, Maoro School, Auki Community High School, Arnon Atomea Provincial Secondary School, Aligegeo Provincial Secondary School, Kilusakwalo Secondary School, and Busrata School in Central Malaita’s Highlands.

This broad initiative underscores the Mala-I-Tolo Trust’s commitment to fostering educational development through sustainable and technological advancements across Malaita.
