I run a campaign and advocacy organization called Power-For-All whose aim is to promote decentralized renewable energy (DRE) as the quickest, easiest and most cost effective way of encouraging energy access globally.

We currently run our campaigns in Nigeria, Zimbabwe and Sierra-Leone and we are rapidly expanding into other countries where energy poverty is endemic.
