Meet the first families to benefit from Light Up Kenya
29th September 2014
Last week, we launched Light Up Kenya, a nationwide campaign to help end light poverty in rural off-grid areas of Kenya. Already we are seeing the positive impact of the campaign on families’ lives.
The first households to receive LED kits were visited by our partner, Sunlite Solar, at the end of the week. The families cited everything from better studying conditions for their children to improved security for their animals as major benefits, which is great news!
Derek, our representative in Kenya, got a chance to take some video footage of one of the properties, giving us some insight into the living conditions and landscape of the rural areas that Light Up Kenya is helping.
You can explore the areas that we have lit up in an interactive map over on our Light Up Kenya page. Just click on the map pins to find out more about each household, including family size, occupation and what they have to say about their newly fitted solar LED kit.
