1.2 billion people

around the world lack access to energy.

Just 56% of the population

in Kenya has 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, and radically improving their health and education.

Our recent news

Project Jua has already supplied over £150,000 in funding to electrify 4 health clinics and 16 schools in Kenya’s poorest, and most remote, regions. We know that electricity – a basic human necessity – can change lives. But there’s lots more to do. So we’ve got big plans to reach even more people across rural Kenya in 2019.
