On 25 July 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported: Solar panels in Kenya are powering school attendance and lowering tuition fees, while providing clean energy. From a mile away, the roof of Mihingoni Primary School glitters in Kenya's midday sun. The effect, though, comes not from the roof but from what is on it: a sparkling array of solar panels. Mihingoni is one of eight mostly off-grid primary schools in the southeastern coastal county of Kilifi that have been fitted with a solar array. The panels are part of a project run by two British-based organizations to provide solar power to primary schools and clinics in remote, off-grid communities. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and education, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

The OVO Foundation -- the charitable arm of a green-leaning energy firm -- provides funding, while Energy 4 Impact, a charity that works on accelerating access to energy, does the installation.

The need is great: thousands of Kenyan schools lack access to the national power grid.
