Congress: It's Time to Electrify Africa


A bill was just introduced in the House by Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) and Senior Democratic Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) that will bring electricity to 50 million Africans for the first time.

Why is this such a big deal? Because in sub-Saharan Africa, 7 out of 10 people don’t have access to electricity. Moms give birth in the dark. Families can’t refrigerate their food. Kids are forced to do their homework at night with just a candle or a flashlight.

Add your name and let our representatives know that it’s time to electrify Africa today.
