A non-governmental organisation, Global Initiative for Food Security and Ecosystem Preservation has provided free solar kits to residents of Bakkasi IDP.
It is the 2nd largest camp of internally Displaced persons in Africa after the Dalori camp and houses more than 39,000 people.
Up till now, the camp had been without any form of electricity and heavily relied on those that can afford generating sets to charge their phones or perform any activity that required power.
The internally Displaced persons were first of all trained on how to install the solar power kits by the facilitators of the programme. The executive director of global initiative for food security and ecosystem preservation, David Micheal believes the project will ameliorate the difficulties the IDPS had faced in the past.
