Developing Sustainability in Villages - A Unique Initiative

Sustainability with Village participation ... driven by Entrepreneurship and Partnership. We can change the world we live in - in our own small way.

Governments should generate and bring light to all corners of the Country. Many development agencies insist that off-grid solar lights should be paid for and not given free. However Our UNIQUE Initiative strives to get the Private Sector / NGOs / or Governments to provide the instruments of Light to remote Villagers and thereafter let the Villagers sustain it by paying for the usage of light. We believe that just selling Solar Lights to Villagers is not the right way. If you want to make it truly sustainable, deliver the means to them and let them pay to sustain it. This is a better form of development.

How does providing sustainable light enhance Food Security?

Villagers who live in darkness, use daylight for income generation. With Light, they are able to enhance their incomes or productivity at night. Children are able to study at night and Education is the driving force behind development. Thus Light is the source of all development.

Albreda & Juffereh Villages Implemented - 27th December, 2010

The Villages of Albreda and Juffereh were implemented under the Initiative on 27th December, 2011.
Under the Sponsorship of the U S Embassy Banjul (a sum of GMD 117,600 from the US Ambassadors Self Help Fund)  as well as a part Sponsorship by INTELIZON themselves, the ComAfrique-InteliZon Initiative team carried out the Implementation providing a total of 187 Solar ZonLights ( 117 Sponsored by the US Embassy and 70 Sponsored by InteliZon).

While the inspiration to bring the Initiative to Juffereh and Albreda was due to efforts initially from Tashawna Bethea and the former Ambassador Barry Wells, full credit to current Ambassador White, Deputy Cynthia Gregg and Mr Zacchary Bailey, Political Attache of the US Embassy Banjul who accompanied  Mr Janko Fofana  and even spent the night at Juffereh during the Implementation. Mr Famara Dampha of ComAfrique conducted the handing over ceremony of the ZonLights to the Village ZonLight Committees of the two villages.  Mrs Bailey accompanied the team to witness basic sustainable lights coming to the home of Roots & Kunta Kinteh.

This brings the Total number of villages sponsored to 11 since we commenced in end 2009.

A total of  900 Lights affecting the lives of 4,500 rural folk in a sustainable manner is the achievement of the Initiative to date as this Initiative now goes Africa wide.
