Two out of every three sub-Saharan Africans live without power.
That’s 600 million people who go through life without:
… A stove to cook on.
… Light to study with.
… Power lines to hospitals.
… Well-lit roads.
When President Obama launched Power Africa, we started thinking a lot about what a day in the “dark” would look like. We spent a full day on the outskirts of Nairobi to see for ourselves what life without electricity means and how it impacts the lives of the people we met.
