Bungoma County is home to an estimated 1.7 million people and sits on an area of 2,069 km². Bungoma is the 3rd populous County after Nairobi and Kakamega. It borders three Counties: Kakamega on the South, Trans Nzoia on the North and Busia on the West. It also enjoys a vast shared international border with Uganda. The county’s economic strength is agriculture: sugarcane, tobacco, coffee, onions, vegetables, sunflower, and dairy cattle, while maize in Tongaren and Naitiri also make the county a vital part of the region’s breadbasket.
This is a new project area for GIVEWATTS with the potential to maximize on distribution of clean energy products owing to the fact that most families in the rural areas rely on fossil fuel for lighting, while firewood is the most common cooking fuel in most households. With this project, the aim is to increase understanding of the benefits of clean and affordable energy and to get schoolchildren to study with better light at night.
GIVEWATTS brings access to clean energy products as solar lamps and clean stoves. GIVEWATTS has developed a process where the initial funding starts the distribution wheel. Our aim is to keep a balance between business efficiency and impact.
Clean energy solutions have socio-economic and environmental impact. We continuously use studies and research to calculate the impact. Use the button to read more about the impact. If you want to know your impact, please contact GIVEWATTS.
