Freeplay Foundation: Empowerment Through Access to Power

One of our fervent wishes for the New Year is that clean, green energy continues to replace fossil fuels around the world. We are particularly hopeful that nations where electricity is still scarce may be able to leapfrog past some of the dirty, outdated technologies of yesteryear that the rest of us are saddled with. Among the companies that are working to make this happen, Freeplay Energy has got to be one of our favorites. Yesterday we took a look at some of the latest Freeplay products, but we thought we’d start the new year with this inspiring video about how some of these products are being applied by the Freeplay Foundation in Zambia to promote sustainable enterprise and the empowerment of women. We are looking forward to seeing a proliferation of such projects throughout 2008. Those seeking more inspiration can check out our post on the use of the Solio in Kenya, or read up on our guide on How to Green Your Electricity. ::Freeplay Foundation::via Freeplay Energy::via YouTube::
