This photo made January 27, 2011 shows the solar-powered mobile internet cafe in the village of Embakasi, some 25 kms from Nairobi, fashioned from a shipping container that is part of an initiative to spread access to information in impoverished semi-urban rural areas of Kenya. Residents Nairobi who lack readily available access to information can now get on the web, thanks to a solar powered internet cafe improvised by Computer Aid International in conjunction with Computers For Schools Kenya (CFSK). The solar panels power 11 flat screen monitors running off a single Pentium-four PC and satellite connection enabling access to the net via a cellular data connection. The container can be placed anywhere on the planet, with no need for mains electricity or wired connections and is capable of providing 12 hours' worth of electricity every day for up to 25 years, according to the charity Computer Aid International, which plans to set up several more solar internet cafes in sub-Saharan Africa over the coming year.
