How many times have you thought "I wish there was something I could do to help people in Africa"? Or you wished their governments would do something to help them advance?
Well, wish no more. Now you can help by empowering the wonderful people behind Dabaddo to do what they do best, which is empowering people with the proper tools to take care of themselves. They do that by bringing one of the most essential necessities to human existence for those need: ELECTRICITY.
A word from Dabaddo:
Daba – now; Ddo - light
TURN ON THE LIGHTS & CONNECT
Why do 600 million people, 70% of the population of Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) live without electricity? It is not because the technology doesn’t exist or that we don’t know how to build and install it. It is because energy providers have not found a way to profitably connect them to the grid. This does not mean that those without electricity today do not desire the basics of electricity, such as lights at night or a charged cell phone, it is just that they cannot afford luxury electricity and mass consumption, which is required to make large scale grids profitable. They not only can’t afford the cost of luxury electricity; they can’t afford the appliances required to consume this electricity like washers, driers, dish washers, multiple lights, fans, air conditioners, computers, TV’s, etc…
Likewise, only 120million of nearly 1 billion people living in SSA have access to the internet (in 2012 the UN General Assembly declared access to the Internet a Universal Human Right).
YOU can fundamentally make a difference in the lives of many by supporting us get this project off the ground! Not only will YOU have a direct local impact, but YOU will help us kickstart the only village level branded entity focused entirely on this grossly underserved population. Our objective isn't 1 or 2 locations, but hundreds and thousands. Everyone talked about the markets of China and India, however Africa, as a continent, has a similar population as India, but she is consuming 35% more. We aim to bring access to the masses via first giving the masses access to the world.
How can you help if you don't have the financial means to contribute?
Huge thanks in advance!
