Children in rural communities support their families by working on farms or chores after school until the sun goes down. Most of these children do not have access to electricity at home or in their villages. Ghana has a rigorous high school entrance exam with only 50% of applicants being accepted. Without light to study in the evenings, less than 10% of children in rural Ghana will enter high school. Empower Playgrounds helps level the playing field for these children through sustainable innovation.

We turn children's play into renewable electricity that charges lanterns used to study at night. 

I work with teachers in rural community schools on the use of science kits, distribution of lanterns and Electricity generating Playground equipment.

Find out about our organization, mission, our methods, and the results of work.
