Kenya – DSTAR is dedicated to providing technical training to under privileged and orphaned youth in the slums of Kenya. Their project, funded by a $5000 grant from GPA engages youth who have some computer literacy to directly recruit and train others in order to build a cohort of trainers. Those trainers complete additional technical training and continue to recruit other youth for participation. Youth who have completed the requisite trainings will be provided the opportunity to produce LED based solar lanterns from locally available materials. The lanterns will be produced, tested and sold through social and print media. DSTAR will train over 200 youth and utilize the solar lanterns providing income support for their families and their communities.
