Kenya and others
The road to Domitila Muinde’s house in Masii, Machakos County, Eastern Kenya is obviously illustrated that her residence is located in the area with underserved power or no electricity. When the light from the sun disappears, all the activities she could do at home is limited. If she wants to communicate with others, she has to walk miles and miles to the nearest town. Perhaps, this is not the lifestyle she wants.
In July, she decided to take the loan from KWFT-Kenya Women Microfinance Bank, then a set of Barefoot Connect 3000 Solar Home System Lighitng and a 16 inch TV were delivered to her house.
The same day the Barefoot Power technician installed the Solar lights and TV into her home.
Domitila is now enjoying watching the news on the TV with Solar Lights at night time. This is the lifestyle she and her son choose.
Barefoot Power COO, Mr Jackson Machuhi participated in the Signing Climate Pledge 2016 for “ChangeClimateChange” campaign of WWF Kenya , at Nairobi, Kenya.
