SOLAR UP AFRICA is an organization that came up to solve the electricity problem for families who cannot afford the bills of electricity by providing solar panels so that they can keep their smiles on by receiving more light.
this is through funding and also partnering with the solar companies that will be providing the solar panels to the families that will need them.
Well as the goal is to go all over Africa, that campaign is starting from Uganda where I have seen and experienced road shading.
with the help of the funders, I guess I will reach the goal of 200,000 USD to help people who will need it.
