About ACLENet


Mission Statement

ACLENet's mission is to reduce deaths, injuries and property damage from lightning across Africa.

  • Lightning causes deaths and injuries across Africa, devastating families and communities.

  • It also kills livestock, still a major measure of wealth in African countries.

  • In already economically challenged countries, lightning causes direct damage to utility infrastructure, industry, communications systems, and mining that may take weeks to repair as parts are sought.  It also causes harder-to-calculate indirect costs of downtime for those who suffer loss of work and must live without power, communications, refrigeration, and other things as a result of the direct damage - things we take for granted.
