OBAMA VISITING 

25 July 2015, a big day for our project. Former US President Barrak Obama visiting Afrisol Power Africa booth at the United Nations headquarters, shaking hands and chatting with Amos Nguru (CEO). Afrisol  was brought to this level by a project funded by United States Africa Foundation and General Electric under Power Africa off grid program. President Obama took a lot of interest in the project and had two questions for Amos: “what do you have here is it a biomass reactor or moonshiner lighter” and “how did you come to think of this?” 

Amos his answer to the question was: "I grew up in rural Kenya with no priviledge of enjoying electricity. The first time I put on lights was when I joined high school and it was very exciting so I desired that other children may enjoy same privileged even at an earlier age. When the right time came I founded Afrisol to realize this dream. We have set the ball rolling for great partnerships to provide an energy solution with great impact’.
