Dear Blue Blue,

The Smart Villages Initiative kicked off its global programme in East Africa two years ago. Even though many of us had previous experience of the region through the B4FA (Biosciences for Farming in Africa) project, we were still astonished by the drive and ingenuity of potential stakeholders - indeed Terrat in Maasai country seemed the archetypal Smart Village. This still seems the case, with new stories arriving without fail every week. In this issue I recommend two that have lessons applicable further afield - Shell’s clever way of adding muscle to a social enterprise’s roll out of gravity lights and the promise at the end of the Ugandan solar lighting story by the President to favour companies who set up manufacturing of solar products in the country. Lastly, have a look at Fatima Romero’s report  - she attended our recent workshop and was evidently inspired to highlight the energy access issue in her country Honduras.
