The single most important precondition for a country’s success is access to electricity. In a knowledge economy access to electricity – even a simple solar charger – is the foundation for everything; a game-changer.
Without such access to electricity, small businesses can’t grow, children struggle to do their homework at night and hospitals are extremely limited in their ability to provide health care services. That's why we are supporting the large-scale Power Africa initiative.
Power Africa was launched in 2013 by the US Government, to help expand access to electricity across the continent. Power Africa aims to add 30,000 Megawatts of cleaner power generation across all of sub-Saharan Africa, and increase electricity access by adding 60 million new connections.
