A social entrepreneurship project in Yele, Sierra Leone is being organized by a student group to bring light to this village which lacks electricity.
A group of four students will travel to Yele for a month to develop plans for hydroelectric power generation and negotiate with Ecobank for funding support. The four students are part of the organization Project Yele, which is dedicated to helping the people of this African village to acquire electricity and develop their economy as well.
The project was established in 2007 by a group of Norwegian students from Taft University who first traveled to Yele to work on volunteer projects. The team has been cooperating with a Dutch NGO in Sierra Leone called the Lion Heart Foundation on the development of a hydro electric plant for the village, and the plans are now in the construction stage.
