Working in the Mara
Difficulties in accessing schools and high poverty levels among the pastoralist communities living in the Mara basin manifested in the high school dropout, low enrollment and early marriages among girls has been a major problem in the area for decades. This was typified when we first visited the school one year ago. Today however, things have changed thanks to the solar systems set up through the WWF Energy Project with the support of Sida. This project aims at enabling communities to access clean lighting solutions.
