In Tanzania, we’ll be working with CPAR in Karatu, a village in the region of Arusha.
CPAR of Tanzania does really cool and valuable work in the area of water sanitation and sustainable agricultural management. We’re working together to try to provide electricity to individuals and households in a few of the villages they do work in.
During our Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability class in the Spring, we partnered with d.light India to explore the needs of Indians living without electricity and design a product to improve their lives. Although our project has moved to focus on Tanzania as a starting point for our product, d.Light continues to give us support. During our stay in Tanzania this summer, we hope to visit the d.Light office in Dar es Salaam to share our experiences and insights about the life and culture in Tanzania.
