Modern Lighting for Africa's Development

"This video, Modern Lighting for Africa's Development, shows how un-electrified low income households and small businesses in rural Kenya have switched from kerosene lamps to portable solar lanterns, and what benefits clean, modern off-grid lighting has brought them. It is intended for development partners.

The video includes footage of Lighting Africa's consumer education campaign in Kenya, which focuses on solar portable lanterns. Lighting Africa, a joint IFC and World Bank program, is mobilizing the private sector to build commercial markets for a range of modern off-grid lighting products. The program works with manufacturers, distributors, microfinance institutions, and consumers to make these products accessible to Africa's un-electrified communities."
