Grannies of Kenya

I was commissioned by Greenlight Planet to travel to Kenya and shoot some stories on how their solar lamps (Sun King) have been transforming lives in rural Africa. This is one of the stories that I created. I have kept it more about the subjects and less about the ‘product’. Hope you like it! The video shows you a glimpse of the life of grannies living in coastal parts of rural Kenya. They travel long distances to buy fish every day, then prepare cooked fish and sell it in the evening for some money. Their problem (among many others)? No light during the evening to conduct business. But with access to solar energy, that has now been taken care of, and things are gradually changing for the rural populace!
