On behalf of Agency for Rural and Urban Development (ARUD), the entire off-grid communities of Kasese District uganda ; and on my own behalf ,i would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the promise to donate solar home systems. Kasese Dstrict has a total of 140,697 households,of which 90.5% depend on kerosene lamp for lighting (World Wide Fund-WWF Uganda country office baseline report 2012).This is attributed to limited access to renewable energy technologies by households,institutions and entrepreneurs, due to limited supply,limited awareness and high initial cost of acquiring the technology.Subsequently there is accelerated carbon dioxide emissions leading to extreme weather conditions high expenditures ,poverty and ill health where women and children are the most affected. Therefore this offer will assist a lot in improving the livelihoods of off-grid communities and enhancing environmental sustainability by reducing energy poverty.
