Mini grid electricity the only way to get millions out of darkness

Mohamed Adow, Director of Power Shift Africa

Over the past six months, millions of young Kenyans have lost valuable learning time as they stayed home due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Various options have been explored by authorities to offer schooling through alternatives such as distance learning, but these have proved unviable. This is because virtual learning is delivered via gadgets such as computers and smart phones which are powered by electricity.

Virtual learning would therefore have disadvantaged hundreds of thousands of students especially in rural areas whose families have no electricity, either because they are either poor or live in remote, isolated parts of the country, away from main-grid electricity.
