Electricity is a commodity that is often taken for granted in most developed countries. However, in many parts of the world, like in the Tongozola village in Michinji, Malawi, a lack of electricity – particularly of light – can be detrimental, or even life-threatening. Living in darkness can mean lacking proper access to village resources – such as restrooms or communal wells – in the dark. It can serve as a hindering influence that prevents the pursuit of a proper education. Or it can be the cause of potential injuries that can lead to debilitating disability.
It is the Our AIM Foundation’s wish to light up those areas of the world that have little to no electric resources, like the Tongozola village. We hope that in the future, we can provide sustainable solutions for electricity – like solar power – that can lead these disadvantaged countries out of the dark.
