Light Up and Connect Africa

Three Together

Where there is darkness, light can uncover the best of what Gambia has to offer. Where there is silence, the internet can bring Gambians closer to one another for more connected, meaningful and productive lives. Where farms are barren and stagnant, tools and irrigation can provide Gambians with a degree of productivity and self-sufficiency which they have sought after for decades. In turn, other advances in education, community development, and culture can occur. As we address these three areas of focus, energy (electricity), communications (internet), and agriculture (tools and irrigation), we will witness a great transformation in the smallest communities. As villages become self-sufficient, and able to communicate and power their daily lives, the quality of life for many Gambians will transform in a short span of time. We look forward to working with key partners, social responsibility and sustainable development practitioners, as well as community stakeholders in order to realize our mission and vision.

Energy development is a field of endeavor focused on making available sufficient primary energy sources and secondary energy forms to meet the needs of society.These endeavors encompass those which provide for the production of conventional, alternative and renewable sources of energy, and for the recovery and reuse of energy that would otherwise be wasted. Energy conservation and efficiency measures reduce the impact of energy development, and can have benefits to society with changes in economic cost and with changes in the environmental effects.

Infrastructure refers to the fundamental facilities and systems serving a country, city, or area,including the services and facilities necessary for its economy to function.It typically characterises technical structures such as roads, bridges, tunnels, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, telecommunications, and so forth, and can be defined as "the physical components of interrelated systems providing commodities and services essential to enable, sustain, or enhance societal living conditions

Agricultural productivity is measured as the ratio of agricultural outputs to agricultural inputs. While individual products are usually measured by weight, their varying densities make measuring overall agricultural output difficult. Therefore, output is usually measured as the market value of final output.
Importance of Agriculture Productivity:
The productivity of a region's farms is important for many reasons. Aside from providing more food, increasing the productivity of farms affects the region's prospects for growth and competitiveness on the agricultural market, income distribution and savings, and labour migration. An increase in a region's agricultural productivity implies a more efficient distribution of scarce resources. As farmers adopt new techniques and differences, the more productive farmers benefit from an increase in their welfare while farmers who are not productive enough will exit the market to seek success elsewhere.
