Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
Farmers have been able to improve on their farming methods and skills due to educative agricultural programs they have been able to access on our Solar tV System.Most farmers have learnt new farming methods,access new markets for their produce as well as learnt new pest control methods ,attributed to educative programs they enjoy on our solar Tv kit.
Moreover,testimonies from our women customers revealed that,by virtue of buying our solar Tv kit,their husbands now arrive home early(6pm) to watch news and other programs,contrary to previously when they could arrive home very late drunk.Watching Tv at home has prevented them from visiting alcoholic dens thus creating a strong family bond.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
Our solar powered Tv kit has already been installed in 1000 rural households across Kenya enabling over 30,000 families access news,information,agricultural market trends of various crops as well providing over 10,000 rural school children access to 3 more study hours every night.
Our solar powered Tv kit comes as a package comprising 19" solar powered Tv that offers Tv entertainment and other social benefits to users,2 solar bulbs that are used to light up 2 addition rooms within the house thus reducing/eradicating use of unhealthy kerosine,mobile phone charging adapter that enables mobile phone users to be able to re-charge their phones from the comfort of their houses without having to pay weekly mobile phone recharging costs.
In the 5 years,we target to deliver solar energy to 35,000 off-grid customers across East Africa impacting the lives of 10M families,reducing carbon by 13%
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
In our 10 year roll out plan,we target to sell our solar powered Tv within the Eastern African market then expand to central Africa and West Africa. 3.3M rural off-grid middle class customers across Eastern Africa have no access to Tv entertainment,reliable in-house lighting and mobile phone charging solutions due to lack of access to grid power connection.Due to their ability to afford our solar Tv kit,we believe by rolling out our product within these market region,we shall able to provide real time solutions to these big market while still remaining sustainable.
