Yemen - Not technically Africa, but it is very close and lightning injuries occur there due to the large amount of lightning so we are going to report them here.
Bangladesh Lightning Safety Program
ACLENet has maintained a Guidestar Gold Seal for transparency since 2017. Less than 2% of the organizations listed on this
Ludwig Family FoundationLudwig Family Foundation has awarded ACLENet a $99,908 grant to protect 3 model schools in Uganda that will offer lightning safety education to teachers, students, parents and local officials in their districts. It will also allow us to decrease the cost of lightning protection for schools by assembling a list of locally sourced materials to avoid expensive imports and to design a set of lightning protection 'templates' for typical school buildings instead of designing each one separately. The Uganda Ministry of Education and Sports has helped by giving us the architectural plans for the new schools they are building and several experienced lightning protection specialists have volunteered their help as well.
