One of these core objectives of the ACLENet is education, including public education, instruction in schools, training for safety and injury prevention workers, and graduate student training in collaboration with graduate supervisors. ACLENet, along with four partner organizations, was included in the first awards of the Global Resilience Partnerships grants for their proposal to bring Severe Weather Early Warnings (SWEW) to farmers and fishermen living and working on Lakes Victoria and Kyoga and in the cattle corridor of Uganda. Because over half of the lightning deaths in Africa reported by the media are to school children, another project is the ‘Lightning Kills! Save a Life in Africa’ campaign to sponsor lightning protection systems to schools, often the most substantial buildings in a village. Recently incorporated, ACLENet is now ready to solicit partnerships and funding to accomplish these goals.
