Challenge

In Kenya, there are over 27 Million people with no electricity. According to 2009 Kenya government census, over 40,000 people in Malava have no electricity and rely on kerosene lanterns and firewood for lighting and cooking. The project will provide 500 locally made solar lamps to 500 families, each with an average of 7 people. The families will use part of the money initially spent on kerosene to set up small businesses after getting the lamps. Education, health and environment will improve

Solution

Youth will be trained to make solar lamps. The lamps shall be distributed to poor families through groups. The families will be trained on micro-enterprise, and helped to set up small businesses from the money initially spent on kerosene

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 500 families with solar lamps, helping to economically empower them through the small business they set up. Education and Health will improve for their children, and Carbon Emissions will be eliminated from the environment.
