We can consider equal and easily attainable accesses to sustainable energy services as Human Rights, which vitally contribute to human wellbeing. Sustainable electrification liberates humans from fetching fresh water from long distances and from water-based deceases as well as from sitting in the darkness. Because of clean water and nutritious food, your family members stay healthy and women do not need to stay home and nurse sick persons. With sustainable electricity in place, children and women can go to school, women and men can cultivate profitable vegetables, grains, and other agricultural products, as well as women and men can establish micro-to small business or they can go to work.
Electrification in developing countries, and notably rural electrification for poverty reduction and human development, has gained considerable attention over the two decades. Clean water, the most commonly researched and implemented basic need, requires energy for pumping water from clean water resources, and this Clean Water service empowered by new and sustainable solar electric system was introduced in above section. Clean Water was preferred a crucial basic need influencing on other basic needs as Food, Health, Education, Agricultural Productivity, Lighting, and Jobs either directly or through Health (TAMAA Case). Malnutrition is the top health risk both worldwide and in low income countries, whereas in low income countries unsafe water, sanitation and hygiene is the second biggest risks. However, according to future estimates in 2030 by World Bank, Africa’s total agriculture and agribusiness could create opportunities for an industry sector of 1 000 billion USD, which is half of Africa’s total economy of 2000 billion today. Regarding potential Food markets development, Africa has most of uncultivated land in the world, approximately 6 % of land is irrigated and in Sub-Saharan Africa only 4%.
To reduce these risks and increase wellbeing and promote food market opportunities, this Clean Water is required for the other service named Drip Irrigation to Food Markets and food preparations as well. On the other hand, increased prices provide better incomes for those who can sell their products to food markets. The solar-powered electrification, the illumination systems, and the new created services built layered solar powered community systems. Preliminary, secondary, and tertiary educations, as well as apprenticeship contracts harness villagers with opportunities to achieve their full potential, self-actualization, and to be full members of society. In a flourishing community, villagers can gratify their social needs, have opportunities to empower others, and work together in collaborative learning communities.
