I just finished a short piece on solar energy and health care in East Africa. I shot it at a health center in a small village in Burundi, the tiny country directly south of Rwanda. It was an amazing trip. The clinic is situated far from the electrical grid, but an American non-profit called the Solar Electric Light Fund installed a solar energy system that completely powers the clinic. The piece gives a little glimpse into that process, and into life in Burundi (which is consistently ranked among the 5 poorest countries in the world by everyone who does that kind of ranking).
