Kuyere! means "Let there be light!" in Chichewa, the language of Malawi

Our project is dedicated to the idea of affordably and sustain-ably providing solar electricity to the poorest rural households in Africa over the next 10 to 20 years.
We have now organized a system where:
  1. We build the solar electric systems in Africa, thus generating jobs and increasing affordability;
  2. We distribute the systems and have the villagers pay as much as they can afford; and
  3. We recruit people in richer countries to help pay the difference between what the villager can afford, and the cost of the solar electric system
With this system, we can get a small custom-installed, wired solar electric system with lights in every room and a fast cell phone charger to a family of five in rural Africa for a donor cost of only $20!

The following link allows you provide a monthly donation that goes to individual families, some of whom need a little help to buy their solar system.  Every 2-3 months will be provide you the pictures and names of the specific families that benefit from your donation by getting solar electricity:

We calculate that if we can get solar to enough people fast enough, then we could potentially save more than 1 million lives: read about the details HERE

Our system is working well on the ground in Malawi, and which we hope to grow exponentially over the next few years and take to neighboring countries in Southern and Eastern Africa. 

With our plan and strategy we are going to try as hard as we can to get good, durable, sustainable solar electricity services to tens of millions of households in rural Africa by the year 2030.

On this site, we share our learning and progress and invite you to help and participate in this very worthwhile endeavor.
