Man in Tanzania sewing by light

Power Africa photo contest winner shows a man in Tanzania sewing at night with the aid of a solar light, which is helping to provide additional income generating opportunities for him and his family. The light, made available by d.Light – an African Clean Energy Finance ACEF grant recipient, is empowering rural families in Tanzania by extending their productive day well beyond nightfall.

Power Africa, an initiative by President Barack Obama to double access to power in sub-Saharan Africa, is breaking cycles of poverty by giving people the tools needed to improve the livelihood of their families and communities.
