Recently, REES lighted up two different communities - Lagelu and Sabokodji Island in Oyo and Lagos respectively, through households’ distribution and installation of free solar. These communities have spent two centuries without electricity. Their source of light is dominantly kerosene and palm oil lamps as well as battery-powered flashlights. Thanks to REES, they now enjoy clean solar energy.
Moreover, nursing and pregnant mothers, households with respiratory and related health issues, and families with children studying were given priority as beneficiaries. The organization carefully picked indigents and trained them how to troubleshoot the devices when problems occur.
