In southwestern Kenya, 200 miles west of Nairobi on shores of Lake Victoria, is the mainland town of Mbita and two inhabited islands, named Rusinga and Mfangano. This remote region, known as the Suba District, is home to the Luo tribe and very near to where President Obama’s grandmother still lives. In June 2010, three members of our San Diego Professional Chapter traveled by plane, van, and ferry to this region to determine if building a PV solar electric system on a school would be feasible. We have returned with a new strategy for supplying power to the school as well as many stories of integrity and perseverance.
