Think about your daily routine for a minute. What household items do you use that require electricity?
620 million people in sub-Saharan Africa don’t have access to electricity. That means a lot of the items you’re thinking of aren’t an option because they require electricity: refrigerating your food, heating your water or watching the news.

That means just one freezer uses more than an average person in Liberia.
Surprised? I know I am.
