Powering Education represents the first pilot project of Powering Impact. It was rolled out between September 2013 and September 2014 and consisted of a 12-month study exploring the linkage between access to clean energy sources and education. It was based on a Randomized Control Trial (RCT) model designed and managed by the project’s Research Team. Powering Education entailed the distribution of approximately 300 solar lamps to 300 students in 12 schools located in rural and off-grid communities in Kenya. It was jointly implemented by GIVEWATTS and our on-the-ground team.
