UK-FUNDED SOLAR ENERGY PROJECT WILL PROVIDE ENERGY TO A PERUVIAN SCHOOL IN THE AMAZON

British Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, and Peruvian Foreign Secretary, Nestor Popolizio, visited a community in the Amazon river, where they launched a UK-funded solar energy project that will provide energy for the Santa Marta school and its 140 pupils using British lithium battery technology. 

The project is part of the Prosperity Fund -a UK government funding facility to promote economic growth and poverty reduction in developing countries.
