This initiative is Hanibel Nyarko's singular attempt at averting a similar occurrence at the health facility in her area to save newborn babies' lives.

Speaking to the Wins TV, Hannibal, who is a grade 7 pupil at the Hill View Montessori School said she was heartbroken to hear in the news that a baby died due to power interruptions.

"A baby died in an incubator at the Tema General Hospital, and I was a bit sad. The baby died due to Dumsor [power outages]. So I was a bit sad. So I was like how could a baby die? It's just a newborn baby. So decided to create this for the Iron City Clinic," she said.

Hanibel Nyarko said having been goaded by the sad incident at the Tema General Hospital she quickly put the electricity lessons she had learnt in school to practice, the outcome of which was the solar light she provided for the clinic.

Finally, someone has lifted the name of our hood up, I do hope the minister of Education can get in touch with her for a massive push. Just that, here in Ghana negative news trend more than positive ones, best wishes to her.
