How electricity can transform rural communities
30 September 2019
Electricity is an important input in social and economic development. This video has been produced by Energy 4 Impact and the Tanzania Council for Social Development to inform people in newly electrified villages in Tanzania about the benefits and income generating opportunities arising from electricity access. This initiative forms part of the Tanzania Rural Energy Agency’s community-based energy education programme, designed to increase the uptake of electricity in areas characterised by low levels of connections and consumption, due to lack of information. By improving consumer’s awareness of requirements, procedures, benefits, costs and usage of electricity to power businesses, education and health infrastructure, the Rural Energy Agency hopes to increase the number of connections, enhance the performance of rural electrification projects and drive development in rural communities.
