Third year students in two communities in the Keta Municipality have been spared the trouble of the current energy crises having been provided with solar lamps.

A total of 45 solar lamps were distributed to students from the two schools including Agorvinu and Lawoshieme Junior High Schools.

These two communities are among the island communities in the municipality and have difficulties with social amenities that authorities are doing everything possible to address.

Not too long ago, through the hard work of the Member of Parliament for Keta, Mr. Richard Quashigah, the communities were installed with solar panels that gave them light.

A follow up on that project by Mr. Richard Hosier, Senior Energy Specialist at the World Bank- Washington DC to assess the impact of the project on the people again resulted in individual students receiving the solar lamps which he donated.

Speaking to, Mr. Quashigah who took Mr. Hosier round the project sites said the solar lamps were presented to third year students to aid their studies and preparation towards examination.

He said these children have to be motivated by any means possible to take their studies seriously including provision of logistics in order to come out with good results that can propel them further in their academic pursuits.

The MP said he is very determined to see Keta regain its academic pride, as such he will continue to use his influence to get resources to support education in the municipality.

He urged the students to make good use of the lamps by devoting their time and energy on their studies.
