The Awesome Power of the Sun
Imagine living in a world where there are no lights at night to read, study or do homework. No stove to turn on to cook dinner. No outlet to charge your cellphone. Hard for many to imagine. However, 80% of Uganda’s population has no access to electricity. Kerosene, diesel and firewood are used instead – major contributors to house fires, tragic burns and indoor air pollution.
SunFunder is dedicated to changing the lives of those 80% of Ugandans, and others around the world by investing in solar energy for them. They are doing it by partnering with companies like SolarNow which provides affordable solar home systems to off-the-grid families and businesses in Uganda.
