We are delighted to hear from Isaac Soro and the team who have established and have been monitoring the Loud Hailer project in Uganda.
The loud hailer project is an initiative that is intended to establish information hubs for the rural poor communities who do not have access to information via radios, televisions and print media. Eleven information hubs are planned and four systems have so far been established.
The loud hailer system consists of a loudhailer connected to an amplifier that is powered by a solar power system of 300W. An inverter and a charge controller are also installed so that AC and DC devices can be connected alternatively. Each set contained two 150W solar panels, 2 batteries of 100AH each, 1000W inverter, 40A charge controller, 2 loud hailer (horn speaker), amplifier (AC/DC), 2 microphones, 2 bulb
lighting system and other accessories.
The messages from the speakers can be reached clearly by people in a 4 km radius from the station.
The project has the following achievements in the first 2 locations of Mijale and Imvepi since their establishment on 17th August, 2020;
