Photographing for SolarAid UK and Sunny Money Kenya's fundraising campaign entitled 'The speed of light' where the UK government was committed to doubling any donations raised within a six month period.   598 million people in Africa alone have no access to electricity, without electricity families have no clean source of light leaving millions to rely on expensive and dangerous alternatives such as homemade kerosene lamps which are a poor source of light, they emit toxic black smoke, eat up to 15% of a family’s income and are extremely hazardous.  Children can’t study at night, the working day ends prematurely and indoor air pollution presents a serious health hazard.  With a solar light, everything changes.  Solar energy for off grid communities is fast becoming the norm thanks to companies like SolarAid and Sunny Money where access to clean solar light energy in some of the most remote regions of the world is building a movement to eradicate the kerosene lamp.  www.solar-aid.org
