Over the Christmas period work began on amber energy's newest project as part of it's Power 2 Africa (P2A) mission. The build of a cyber café in Tharaka Nithi County, Kenya began just before the New Year.
A not for profit arm of the business, P2A is striving to 'turn a light off- to turn a light on' in areas of Africa that have no energy supply, in a bid to give these communities the same opportunities that the Western world so easily take for granted. P2A is funded by amber energy's fundraising efforts namely, it's charity cup golf day, donations made on Energy Relief; amber's not for profit domestic and SME energy switching site, and also through partners of the P2A mission who thus far include; Spindogs, City Suites (part of the Select Property Group) Turing Trust and Ubuntu Power.
The cafe will be a concrete base building with concrete walls and roof fully equipped inside with computer work stations and computers themselves. amber energy are partnering with Ubuntu Power who have installed the solar canopy and biogas already.
amber energy CEO and P2A founder Nick Proctor said ' We’re excited to be supporting a project that will enable improved education and hopefully support the next generation of energy entrepreneurs. I'm excited to see the project finished and to be able to use it to help promote the power behind the P2A mission.'
