David Levine wants to “solarize Ghana.” Later this summer volunteers with his organization, Volunteers for International Development and Aid (VIDA), plan on road tripping across Ghana on a 40-foot revamped school bus that will serve as a “mobile solar workshop.” Their mission is to install solar power in schools and clinics that might not otherwise have access to electricity along the way. For Global Activism, Levine joins us to explain what he and fellow volunteers hope to accomplish with the SolBus.
