With the solar spotlight, a child is able to study in her house after school in Kirundo Province, Northern Burundi. Solar power is a sustainable and efficient way to produce electricity in rural Burundi, where the lack of infrastructure reduces the population’s access to energy. Building a market for solar electricity systems is a crucial component of AVSI's project UMUCO W’ITERAMBERE. The project, funded by the European Union, aims to improve the living conditions of Burundian rural communities by providing them with access to a more efficient and durable energy system.
