SWB installed a solar power water pump in one of the communities on the LAC rubber plantation in July 2014. The system includes water taps inside and outside the homes. LAC is happy with the project to date and has expressed possible interest in other renewable energy projects for their communities but the Ebola outbreak in Liberia stalled the project and made it difficult to travel in 2015. It also negatively affected LAC’s business providing them with limited funds for future projects. However, we still hope to continue to work with them in the future.
