Accessing energy plays a crucial role to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of human development. We realize the importance of providing this basic need as well as access to training and education. By teaching life skills to women, enabling children to study longer, combating chronic pulmonary disease and other ailments, providing education about sustainable living and partnering with local NGOs, the WakaWaka Foundation not only provides the technological device to escape energy poverty, we are also providing necessary life skills and competences. For more in-depth information, please read about our five programs.

With this project we kickstart economic development, promote entrepreneurialism, and alleviate energy poverty for those who need it the most.
