John Magiro, Magiro Mini Hydroelectric Power Plant

Two men are having a conversation near a water source that serves as a hydro plant.

Electricity is considered to be one of the engines behind the socioeconomic development of a country and is therefore associated with the availability of services to those which directly enhances their quality of life. John Magiro notes that in Kenya, 63% of households are not connected to the national grid and has thus created the Magiro Mini Hydroelectric Power Plant in Kangema. John aims to alleviate the work of collecting firewood, predominantly done by women and girls, by promoting renewable energy as a business sector and creating a hydroelectric plant from a small waterfall.
