Access to electricity is essential for a basic dignified standard of living. Without electricity, it is a struggle to receive adequate medical care, pursue an education, communicate and receive information, and earn a living. The Aga Khan Development Network operates a number of projects that help create clean energy. For example the Bujagali Hydropower Plant in Jinja, Uganda, built by AKDN and its partners, supplies nearly 50% of the country’s electricity. When it was built, it was the largest carbon offset project in Africa.
