Mobile power to bring Rwanda's remote regions into the future
Walk five kilometres to the next generator to charge your mobile phone? In Rwanda, that's part of everyday life. Henri Nyakarundi wants to solve this problem by bringing solar kiosks to remote areas all over the country. But these kiosks can do a lot more than just turn sunshine into electricity. They also provide access to the internet, among other services. This year, the number of kiosks is supposed to increase 24-fold. Each new kiosk provides a new permanent job - often for people with disabilities, who get an opportunity to earn decent money for the first time.
