Alpha Kabine Baro understands that electricity and access to clean water are non-negotiable and will provide the necessary infrastructure to ensure that those basic needs are made available to each Guinean. Water is the source of life and must be protected. We are, immediately, looking to partner with international Industries and organizations to properly develop the infrastructure necessary to remove barriers that impede sustainable energy development. We will unlock and utilize all possible forms of substantial wind, solar, hydropower, natural gas, biomass, and geothermal resources in Guinea. We will provide Light, Electricity, and personal access to Clean Water throughout the entire country of Guinea. These advancements will a allow Guinea to aid in supplying our neighboring countries with equal access to energy and clean water, and ultimately the entire continent.
- An Estimated 622 Million people in the continent of Africa do not have Electricity
- An estimated 3.5 million people die every year because of respiratory illness caused by indoor air pollution from using kerosene, wood, crop waste, dung, and other biomass for lighting, cooking, and heating within the home.
- The National Electricity Company of Guinea) is responsible for all production and distribution of electricity in the country. However, service is poor; even households in Conakry are served less than 12 hours a day. According to The World Factbook, only 53% of urban areas and 11% of rural areas had access to electricity, leaving 8.7 million people without it. There is also a sharp east-west divide: west of the Ouré-Kaba–Tougué axis, nearly 30% had electricity, but that figure dropped to barely over 5% to the east.
ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER & ELECTRICITY IMPROVES…
- Education– When students are freed from gathering water, they return to class. With proper and safe toilets, girls can stay in school through their teenage years.
- Health Safe water & clean hands = healthy bodies. Time lost to sickness is reduced and people can get back to the work of lifting themselves out of poverty.
