$108 will provide a Maasai home with electricity. The Maasai live in huts made from mud and dung with thatched roofs. The family settlements (called bomas) consist of 6 to 20 houses in a cluster.

  • Maasai homes are dark with only 1 small window and no power.
  • Each boma receives a microgrid which is sufficient to provide power to 10 homes.
  • Each home will have outlets and lighting provided by the boma’s microgrid.
  • The light will allow for evening activities within the home as well as provide light to their nearby livestock enclosures, which will reduce nighttime predators.
  • All the materials and installations are completed by local Maasai women that TGUP previously funded to be trained.
