Kenya Big Picture Learning is grateful for the solar lamps and chargers our schools received when Good Sun came to Nairobi. Kibera, where hundreds of thousands of people live in about a three-square-mile area, has no legitimate electricity or running water. The roads, housing, and sewage facilities are inadequate, one in three people are HIV positive, violence is high, and less than 10% of residents have stable employment. These are difficult conditions in which to affect change.
And yet when Good Sun visited our communities last month, they saw more possibilities than challenges. Good Sun was able to share the much-needed solar lights with school leaders from five of our partner schools. More than 350 teachers, students and families have benefited to date.
