For the children of Kenya, the role of energy determines whether they have the same opportunities in life as their fellow pupils. Without access to electricity, opportunities in life are not equal to children who live in a house that is connected to the national grid or other electricity sources. A child who can study under a proper light that does not pollute their lungs or damage their eyesight and even has electricity to power a computer, has a far better starting point for their education than their Kenyan brothers and sisters who live in manyattas without electricity.
