Barefoot Power Uganda Ltd. is a social enterprise that focuses on providing affordable lighting and phone charging products specifically for low income populations that do not have access to electricity. As J.E.E.P. does as well, they believe that energy access is one of the key building blocks of economic development and the first step to alleviate energy poverty. Thus Barefoot Power’s first area of focus is on the most basic need for clean and affordable lighting. To achieve this, Barefoot Power designs, manufactures and distributes micro-solar lighting and phone charging products that have been designed to target communities in developing countries.
As NGO partnering with Barefoot, J.E.E.P. was invited for the customer appreciation day and the presentation of the new power generation 2.5 of solar lamps which are designed and developed to meet the UN Clean Development Mechanism standards. Staying at the local centre of Barefoot in Bukoto, Kampala, Barefoot was celebrating the new products by serving lunch, awarding customers in terms of best performance, customer service etc and actually presenting the new products. We had a great day enjoying the celebration and getting an insight to the features of Barefoot generation 2.5.
