I bring electricity to remote villages in Africa and got Eva Green to narrate my story. Samuel L. Jackson and other huge stars talked about it. AMA!
My short bio: I am the founder of Power:On. My startup built an independent electric grid for 3000 people in 2015 and now we want to upgrade to solar energy and replicate what we did to solve the electricity access crisis for millions of people. Eva Green narrates our story in a short film that was acclaimed by huge stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, Mads Mikkelsen, Omar Sy...
EDIT1: If you wish to support, just watch the film and share! I need 20,000 email sign ups to be able to launch a crowdfunding campaign!
EDIT2: A lot of people are raising legitimate questions about the charity business and the project's sustainability. Please note this is precisely why we chose to make Power:On a startup and not a NGO! Please read questions and answers about that, and I'm off course happy to give more details!
EDIT3: Dear Redditors, I wanted to thank you all for being so many to ask questions. I truly did not expect such a success (we even were on the front page at one time)!! As a thank you, I wanted to offer you a free copy of an ebook, just for you guys. It's a collection of our "Humans Of Igbérè" series (inspired from the famous "Humans Of New York"). You'll get to walk a mile in the shoes of the inhabitants from the village where Power:On built its first electrical grid, and get to hear what they have to say. These stories are what motivates me to do what I do, and I truly hope you will enjoy them too. To get the ebook, you will only have to sign up with an email. You will be able to unsubscribe at any time (I hate spam as much as you do), even though I hope you will stay with us and be a part of our journey to keep posted of what we do. Enough talk, click here to get your free ebook just for you Redditors I'll still be here if you have more questions! Thank you again for your interest and support!
