On her official visit to Africa, in 2012, UNEP Goodwill Ambassador Gisele Bundchen went to the grassroots level in Kenya to experience the reality of energy poverty and to see how Kenyans are transforming their lives by accessing sustainable energy.

Gisele's visited Kibera, East Africa's largest slum, where less than 20% of its residents have access to electricity, and witnessed the innovative ways in which communities can gain access to a reliable source of energy by using waste as a resource. She also went to Kisumu, in western Kenya, to see up close the reality of energy poverty and learn about fuel-efficient cook stoves. She joined the local women in collecting firewood for cooking. 

During her trip, the UNEP Goodwill Ambassador also observed how locally produced, cost and fuel-effective technologies, such as stoves and smoke hoods, are making a real difference to rural Kenyan communities.
