Power. It’s an afterthought for those of us that have it constantly at our fingertips. When we don’t have it, light isn’t all that we lose. The modern world is so tied to technology that an upbringing without access to power makes escaping poverty almost impossible.
In April, 2015 we partnered with Tifie Humanitarian and Point Innovate and sent our employees with solar panels , lights and rechargers to the village of Kushea, Ghana, to power up a small technology center. The project will provide schoolchildren and villagers access to a better, brighter future.
