Horseed Primary School in Turkana, #Kenya, serves 3,000 students and does not have any form of #energy. A new #solar system will power 4 classrooms and the administration block, including computers to prepare reports and teaching materials. Thank you OVO Foundation @OVO Energy
A tailored energy need assessment and maintenance support contract with #solar provider @SollatekKenya will ensure that rural #clinics and #schools in #Kenya are adequately powered and that the power stays on!

Students doing their homework with a solar portable lamp in the outskirts of Nkubu, Eastern Kenya. Solar power boosts education in communities by enabling children to study in the evening. #Kenya #solarpower #study #lamps #education
In rural Africa poor households can spend up to 35% of their income on inneficient energy forms such as charcoal and firewood. Affordable and efficient cooking fuels and stoves are needed to reduce indoor air pollution, cut household energy costs and reduce time lost in gathering fuelwood. One solution is briquettes which can be made by hand and provide a much safer alternative. #briquettes #fuel #Africa #energy
Nearly 3 billion people are without access to clean cooking facilities with the resultant indoor air pollution killing more people than AIDs, Malaria and TB combined. To put a stop to this, we've teamed up with initiatives to distribute improved cooking stoves which release less harmful smoke as well as supporting local stove makers and international businesses which manufacture efficient stoves. #airpollution #women #smoke #cookingstoves #health

This is Bacyenge Jean Bosco cutting a customer's hair with an electric shaver in Mukindo, Rwanda. Solar power enables a huge variety of businesses to develop and thrive. This benefits business owners like Jean, as well as everyone in the community who get access to new services. #solarpower #Rwanda #barber #energyaccess
Everybody wants one! #Women are key actors in delivering #solar #energy to last mile consumers in remote, off-grid areas. Because they are the first to suffer from lack of access to clean energy products, they have more insight regarding their benefits.
Busy day at Makouta's shop as villagers come in for breakfast and juice in Néttéboulou #Senegal - she is the only person in the village to own a fridge and saw a great business opportunity, selling fresh products to the community #solar #energy #energyaccess #africa
