Solar for Africa Blog
The electric light bulb was invented in the 19th century, yet here we are in the 21st with over 600 million people in Africa forced to light their homes with dangerous, outdated, technologies such as candles and kerosene lamps. This is unacceptable for so many reasons. This site is all how the pico-solar revolution is changing the situation.

RAGHAV, ABHISHEK BACHCHAN & NELLY SUPPORTING SOLAR

So it says something about me when I can honestly say I had no idea who Raghav, Abhishek Bachlan and Nelly were until I googled them….But, when I did, wow… Fantastic to see such big artists highlighting the fact that 1.3 billion people have no access to electricity. Raghav and his crew visited our team in Tanzania and brought lights out to a rural school. Life without electricity in Tanzania looks like this – a video I took a few years ago in the village where I used to live (a lovely song in Swahili by the way).

Here’s Raghav’s video – Until the Sun Comes Up. For more information on how to light up lives, visit www.solar-aid.org and www.raghav.com
