We have started working with a very poor community on the island of Deck, three hours by boat from Bahir Dar on Lake Tana in northern Ethiopia.
There is no electricity and we think this is the perfect community to pilot a sustainable energy project. We have met with a company who assemble high quality household solar lighting units in Ethiopia. We have product tested and are highly impressed.
This could be the breakthrough we have been looking for – now we will need corporate support to enable us to bring light to some of the poorest families in Ethiopia. Ideas anyone?
