Akon Launches Initiative Aimed At Giving 600 Million Africans Electricity

R&B singer Akon has launched an initiative aiming to bring electricity to 600 million people in Africa. The Akon Lighting Africa initiative has started the Solar Academy, which will help African engineers utilize the sun's energy to produce electricity. 

The Academy will teach African residents how to install and maintain solar-powered electricity systems and micro grids to continually produce electricity. "We have the sun and innovative technologies to bring electricity to homes and communities. We now need to consolidate African expertise," Samba Baithily, a co-founder of the project, told Reuters.
