Helping to empower local communities, we worked with local teams to install 21 solar powered LED streetlights within the informal settlements of Freetown. We installed the permanent lighting in public areas including water collection areas, alleyways, and toilets.
This documentary film describing the journey of this project will form part of a new large scale arts installation to be presented back in the UK, later this year.

Quick intro: Accountability for Informal Urban Equity Hub
More than half of the world’s people live in cities, with one in three of those living in low and middle-income countries doing so in informal settlements, sometimes known colloquially as slums, with inadequate access to services and opportunities to shape decisions about their environment.
