The Anglican-owned Rural Training Center at Kolaero, in Hograno district in the Diocese of Ysabel is now fully lit up thanks to solar power.

Following its year planned activities, the Anglican Church of Melanesia Solar Project Officer Mr Holland Sikou installed 400 watts Solar system with a 2,400 watts Inverter for the school’s classrooms and administration department and three other thirty watts for three dormitories.

This is a big development and an achievement in the history of the School.
