Worldwide, 1.3 billion people have no access to electricity, and an additional one-billion are without reliable access to electricity. Energy poverty plagues vulnerable communities, leaving them in darkness with poor health conditions, inadequate schooling, and minimal economic mobility. Determined to protect the environment and empower underserved communities with access to stable electricity, Twende Solar
was established as a call-to-action to combat our global energy crisis. Twende, meaning “let’s go,” in Swahili, is indicative of the organization's proactive mentality and commitment to sustainable development worldwide.
