Nearly 1 billion

people around the world lack access to energy.

1 in 4 people

in Kenya don't have energy access.

Household electrification is just 2.4%

in one of the counties we're working in – Turkana.

And it's just 16.7%

in Kilifi - the other county we've installed solar power in.

What we're doing

Powering human progress

Good health. Education. Jobs. Progress. These are all dependent on energy access. Yet over a billion people still have no electricity. Through Project Jua – and thanks to simple rays from the sun – we’re powering medical equipment, giving Kenyan school children access to light in the evenings, and radically improving their health and education.

Our recent news

Project Jua has already supplied £2m in funding to electrify over 300 schools and health clinics in Kenya's poorest and most remote regions. We know that electricity - a basic human necessity - can change lives. Our expansion of the project means we can reach even more people across rural Kenya in 2020 and beyond.
