This audio track is a compilation of short snapshots of discussions we held with the users of solar home systems, proceeding our participatory photography workshops.
We explored questions around motivations to purchase the system, their energy needs and aspirations, and most importantly the impact energy access has made on their lives. 14 of those users share their stories in this piece, complementing stories they tell us through their photos.
Photo taking was often inspired by these discussions which, as many participants admitted, made them think about energy access in a new way, going far beyond the physical solar system and its appliances.
Listen in and enjoy!
“I really liked the experience, especially sharing our stories on how the solar system has positively impacted our life.”
