Hello Charles and Mamwaki Enterprise team,
I was reading through your Developing affordable Solar Nano grids for rural off grid small business hubs for communities in Laikipia East District, Kenya project. contribution and finding it very interesting! At United for Hope we are also strong believers in the many opportunities offered by solar energy and I am curious to learn a little more around how you use your solar powered devices for rearing? Is this idea coming from a necessity of your beneficiaries or has it been tested and proven effective results?
Also, do you plan on extending your solar electrification to the households of your area as well or is it just designed for business hubs?
Keep up the great work!

Hi Josh Kyallo and CTI Africa team! First of all major credits to you guys for your Smart Home, Smart Villages data-driven holistic sustainable development in Sub-Saharan Africa entry, such a great contribution.
I'm curious to learn a bit more about how your solar solutions work? What does a "Smart Home" include it its package? At United for Hope we also host solar based projects and work on a "Smart Village" model, and as the potential for growth and scale is huge we would love to learn more from your experience and model!
