Lightning kills in many ways

Newspaper Reports


Most Africans have no 'lightning safe' place they can go to - and that includes school children.  ACLENet is working with the lightning protection industry, governments and other NGO's to assure that appropriate lightning protection systems are installed in schools.   

This is a new website - please check back to see the News section for reports of injuries by date and by country.

    "Following the horrible incident of 2011 when lightning killed 18 of our students, enrollment slipped from about 600 to around 400 because children were afraid to come to school. After ACLENet installed a lightning protection system, enrollment rose to above 800 pupils as families again feel safe sending their children to school.
    Thank you."
