Overview

LUA enables Kenyans to create energy through their everyday movements. More than 85 percent of Kenyans suffer from Light Poverty, a crippling condition that adversely affects their quality of life—from education to health to economic instability. LUA’s first product, Taapoa, is a portable device that uses motion to generate power and electricity, and easily attaches to bicycles, motorbikes, livestock, and boats.
