Spotlight Service Project:

Building Solar Power Systems

Throughout much of Kenya, a large majority of homes lack electricity. This leaves little daylight for productivity, school work, and a means of earning an income. Kerosene lanterns are widely used, but are expensive and burn toxic fumes in the home, which can have a lasting impact on people’s overall health and safety. Our spotlight project partners with a Masai village and brings this essential utility to enrich the lives of its residents through the installation of solar power systems in families’ homes. Together, we’re creating a healthier, safer, and more productive future for Kenyans.
