The Challenges

Chibobo

The Project, Letting Chibobo Shine, is about investigating sustainable energy solutions to support the community of Chibobo in Zambia. When international aid agencies implement projects such as this, they consider the ethics of intervention in a developing world setting. This is not only a sound basis from which to approach supporting a community but also one of the main challenges associated with helping others. We encourage all teachers and students using this site and interested in supporting other developing communities to consider the broader ethical implications of involvement in similar projects. It will shape the way that you think about the needs of the community and how you go about developing solutions in partnership with others.
