Senegalese American R&B and hip-hop recording artist, Akon, in partnership with Give1Project and ADS Global Corporation SA, initiate the project “Akon Lighting Africa”.
Akon is presently on a project called, Give 1 Project where he decided to focus on electricity, Akon is Lighting Africa! The Superstar is touring nine 9 African countries which include Senegal, Mali, Guinea Conakry, Gambia, Burkina Faso, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Congo Brazzaville and Ivory Coast in 9 days to meet with leaders about the project. The project aims to bring electricity to one million households to remote rural villages in West Africa by the end of 2014.
GIVE1 PROJECT is a global organization that aims to engage young people as leaders in creating and building strong and healthy communities. Within a month, the project plans to start delivering village-level solar power to allow people to have light.
