How Offset Solar Changed the Life of Stanford Njuguna

The 18 Year Old Solar Champion

In 2011, Stanford, his mother and two siblings moved to Kinangop after being evicted from their home following ethnic clashes. Several months after moving, there was considerable doubt whether he would be able to finish school.

In 2012, luck came their way. A good Samaritan gave them an acre of land for 3 years to grow their own food. They were also given two solar lights from Offset Solar's charitiable partner Solar-Aid. These lights gave them instant access to clean light. Now, nearly six years later, these two lights still work.

Stanford attributes his academic success to the solar lights. Last year, he successfully finished high school, achieving an A in his favorite subject, mathematics. Out of 615,773 candidates who sat for the national exam, Stanford is one of only 17,000 (2.76%) who will attend public universities in October 2018.

While in high school, Stanford sold solar lights during holidays to offset school fees. He continues to do this to support his sister and brother who are now in public boarding schools.
 

Stanford is full of praise for these lights. Solar for Peace Initiative has taken Stanford to 28 out of the 47 counties in Kenya. He uses these travelling opportunities to promote solar and rally communities to become part of the answer to the challenges facing them. During his spare time in these communities, Stanford gives free coaching in mathematics to those who need it.

Going solar has not only changed Stanford's and his family's life, it has allowed him to positively affect others' lives as well.
