A project to reduce educational disparities among children in non-electrified areas of Tanzania has been underway since 2017. It is being jointly conducted by a Japanese NPO that strives to improve ICT education in developing countries and a Tanzanian NGO that has been addressing poverty in rural villages for 13 years. Together, they have introduced "off-grid" power systems using solar panels and batteries to 45 elementary and secondary schools, thereby bringing light to the darkness.
