Nan Hildreth speaks
Nan Hildreth appeared on Politics Done Right to tell us about her support for the KIVA.org project she is supporting. She wants to provide solar lighting for people in Kenya.
Hildreth says the project serves two purposes. It gives people inexpensive light. Secondly, it saves the environment. People will no longer need to use kerosene for lighting. The project at KIVA that she is supporting is called Pawame.
Once the sun falls in Kenya, over 70% of the population are without electricity. Two million rural families are forced to resort to dangerous kerosene lanterns, rely on friends to charge their phones, and live without access to consistent power for homework, cooking, and entertainment.
Pawame, a Kenyan solar home system distribution and financing company, was founded in 2016 to change that reality by offering modern, high-quality solar home systems on affordable payment plans. Pawame’s solutions allow customers to save money and increase productivity by starting work earlier in the morning or later at night. Eighty-two percent of customers said their lives have “very much improved” since purchasing their Pawame solar home system.
It seems like a project well worth supporting.
