To reduce deaths, injuries and property damage from lightning across Africa
Lightning causes deaths and injuries across Africa, devastating families and communities.
Lightning kills livestock, still a measure of family wealth in many African countries.
Lightning causes direct damage to utility infrastructure, industry, communications systems, and mining in remote areas of countries that are already economically challenged. This damage can take weeks to repair if parts are unavailable or unaffordable. Damage also causes harder-to-calculate indirect downtime costs for businesses and those who suffer loss of work, must live without power, communications, refrigeration, and other things as a result of the direct damage - things we take for granted.
