This Rwandan Man Is Bridging Gaps With Solar-Powered Kiosks That Can Charge 80 Phones at Once

By Theodora Aidoo

If you happen to find yourself in downtown Kigali and your phone battery is down yet you need to make an important call, the mobile solar charger will come to your rescue.

Spread around the city are mobile solar chargers with a minimum fee of 5 cents to fully charge a phone and 3 cents for 10 minutes of Wi-Fi at the kiosks.

The Solar Mobile Charging Kiosk is the innovation of Henri Nyakarundi, one of Rwanda’s youngster who has chosen to become a job creator rather than a job seeker.
