The winners of Nudge Global Leadership Challenge 2014 went to Rwanda as Agents Of Light for WakaWaka. Merve explains in this video what the trip was like and how the experience relates to her daily life.
1.2 billion people around the world have no access to electricity and WakaWaka ('Shine Bright' in Swahili) want to do something about that in a sustainable way. WakaWakas are the most efficient solar powered lamps and chargers in the world. These true lifesavers for anyone in need of electricity are indispensable products both in the developing world and in the West.
It’s 11am and I’ve just ordered an ‘African Tea’ in Kigali. However, I’m now realizing that the milky, gingery pot of heaven that the waitress is about to bring out is in fact just a tourist-friendly version of African Tea.
Can’t believe it’s over seven months since the 30 future leaders of sustainability departed from the first Nudge Global Leadership Challenge at Amsterdam last year, and Stephanie, Merve and I will soon reunite to explore solar energy in Kigali, capital of Rwanda!
