Africa’s middle class is expanding more rapidly than anywhere else in the world, but one key element impedes their growth: access to reliable energy. In an effort to increase awareness about the issue, The ONE Campaign (ONE) has partnered with Discovery Digital Networks to launch a digital campaign to engage young people who believe in making the world a better place for future generations.
Leading the charge is award-winning journalist Laura Ling, Director of Development and Correspondent for Seeker Network, who recently traveled to Tanzania to experience the issue firsthand to tell the stories of several individuals affected by the crisis through a short-form documentary entitled How Africa is Hacking Its Energy Crisis, which premiered today. Additionally, Laura recounts her experiences through a compelling and heartfelt op-ed.
