JAGUAR LAND ROVER LIGHTS UP ONE MILLION LIVES IN KENYA
Jaguar Land Rover and ClimateCare have announced a partnership to help bring clean solar technology to off-grid communities in Kenya. This innovative social impact programme, called ’Lighting up Lives’, will make affordable lighting available to people across Kenya, including 14-year old Franklin Kishsta, a pupil at Kasooni School, Kalawa, Kenya. Franklin is just one of more than one million people living in isolated or off-grid communities who will benefit from the programme.
“I finish all of my homework now,” said Franklin, who dreams of becoming an engineer one day. “Before I could not do it at home when it was dark. I know my parents are much happier now, and so am I.”
‘Lighting Up Lives’ was announced at this year’s Hay Festival, where Jaguar Land Rover hosted the Storytelling Nook – a unique storytelling venue where the company and ClimateCare ran sessions for children to learn about ‘Lighting Up Lives’....
