Reports have surfaced that the very famous rapper Akon will be launching a Solar Academy that is a part of his campaign to help bring new jobs and electricity to Africa.
The Academy will be located in the capital of Mali, and the building process will kick off sometime this summer. It is estimated that the project will supply up to 600 Million people with electricity, and create many job opportunities for years to come. This will be the sign of better days for many, and move things in a positive direction for Africa.
Fun fact: Africa reports on average, 320 days of sunlight a year.
