Lighting Up African Village Schools
Alabamarjara Itama, Entrepreneur, Nigeria, Member
Nigerian population: 150 million - Electricity: < 16bln KwH
South African population: 44 million - Electricity > 195bln KwH.
In a month, millions of Nigerian students in high schools will be writing their final exams.
I have requested to make presentations to multinationals, government developmental agencies on the need to supply portable solar lighting lamps, which quality had been tested by the IFC Lighting Africa program to the students so they can read into the nights. No one bothered to respond. Yet, these are students we expect to succeed us tomorrow.
We know, without being sufficiently mentally evolved, they will fail and remain in the BOP, and the dynasty continues! Please, is there someone or organization out there to help?

I am sorry to hear that no one responded to your plea. I am working in Guatemala and see that same, tragic situation. The technology exists, the need is clear yet no one is willing to respond to help close the gap.
I can only offer my encouragement to you that you continue to strive and find the means to implement your vision. I am doing the same here, asking friends and family for help as the aid / development community seems distant from the wonderful opportunity to light the nations! Keep hope and best wishes in your quest. The smiles on the faces of those who receive the lights will tell you that you are on the right path, even if the pace is slow and painful.

I wonder if Light up the World would be willing to make a move to Nigeria. They've had projects in a few other African countries...
