450 primary students of the Crimson Academy in Kagina Rwanda have received a WakaWaka through joint effort of the How Far Foundation and the WakaWaka Foundation. Because Rwanda is located near the equator it gets dark around 6 ‘0 clock in the evening. Only 21% of the population is connected to the grid which means that the majority of the population lives in the dark after sunset or is forced to use alternative sources of lighting to illuminate their homes. Consequently children are not able to do homework after sunset or are forced to study with the little light provided by candles or kerosene lamps. The WakaWaka lights provides the students of Crimson Academy sufficient lighting to study during the evening and thus improve their school grades.
