After only one year, Akon Lighting Africa is a reality in no less than 14 African countries : Mali, the Republic of Guinea, Benin, Senegal, Niger, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Congo-Brazzaville, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Madagascar, Namibia. Giving priority to training and local job, each of these projects has gone through the same phased process and was delivered very fast :  a review of needs on the ground conducted in partnerships with local governments and authorities, a definition of priority areas, an inventory of requirements to select the most relevant products – street lamps, domestics kits or community kits. All projects are presented in the following map which should give an overview of our progress in real time.
