PowerWells provides electric light and mobile phone charging to people in remote communities.
Light extends the productive hours of the day for educational and economic activities. The systems also replace kerosene lamps, which are known to cause health problems, are bad for the environment and are relatively expensive.
Easily accessible mobile phone charging means that people can get more from their phones. Benefits from mobile phones are broad, including access to educational materials, increased opportunity for economic activity, increased social connectivity and improved communication during emergencies.
