Baseline survey

WakaWaka will enter the Rwandan solar market this November to pilot a new pay-as-you-go energy service; the Virtual Grid. To measure the impact of the WakaWaka Virtual Grid a baseline study has been carried out. The baseline gives the current status of the livelihood circumstances of the target popluation; off-grid households in rural Rwanda. For an accurate and fast data collection the Akvo flow has been used. 30 enumerators were trained in how to use this mobile phone app in the field. In total 638 households were interviewed during one week among several villages in Gicumbi, Kamonyi and Rulindo district.
