WakaWaka Boost

In this project, the goal of our team was to research and develop a new product for WakaWaka specifically aimed at developing countries. Performing a 2 week qualitative research in Rwanda was one of the most meaningful experiences I’ve had as a designer.

With our (field) research, we identified a market opportunity for small solar home systems that can be expanded to become a powerful solar home system after a few years. A pay-as-you-go sales model makes it possible for farmers with a low, fluctuating income to afford high-quality, sustainable solar light and power.
