Another great milestone for WakaWaka
In addition to increasing local support and market uptake, we are pleased to announce the achievement of another great milestone for WakaWaka. As an impact driven social venture that fights to abolish energy poverty across the globe, we are proud to report that a total of 100,000 WakaWaka units have been distributed to disaster zones and areas of need around the world.
“We are committed to ensuring that in addition to enhancing recreational activities and improving safety and security, our products empower communities where daily consumption of electricity is not a reality either as a result of energy poverty or through national disaster,” says Ryan Steytler, Director, Sungrid Group.
Some of the areas that continue to benefit from free or subsidised WakaWaka units include the likes of Syria (34,474 units), the Philippines (13,368 units), Haiti (12,000 units) and Kenya (5,546 units).
“100,000 units to date, and counting,” adds Steytler.
