Electriciens sans frontières (Electricians Without Borders) is an NGO working for international solidarity. Since 1986, it has undertaken projects to help people in the remotest and most disadvantaged areas gain access to both electricty and water, with the objective of improving their living conditions by making access to electricity a cornerstone of human and economic development.
In this ‘Electricity for Everyone’ program, you will discover practical lessons to help you install electricity in your own home. In each video, we will give you a lesson covering a different topic, introducing a range of different subjects over the course of the program, including electrical boards, lighting and circuits. It’s up to you to decide which of these videos interests you most, and what may help you most in setting up your electrical installation at home. These lessons are suitable for beginners to the principles of electricity and basic circuitry, so you don’t have to worry about having any previous training! The program can also be used as a teaching aid by trained electricians so that may pass on their valuable electrical knowhow to the people who need it the most - particularly in the developing world and areas where access to electricity is unstable. Over the course of the program, you will learn about the risks of installing electricity and how to avoid them, as well as how to save energy and how to get the most out of your electrical household appliances. This program was created in collaboration with volunteers from the charity Electriciens Sans Frontières (Electricians Without Borders). The installation of electricity networks is essential for social and economic development. It means that the important buildings in the community such as schools and hospitals can run; it also makes roads safer and can even be used to give people access to clean drinking water.
