New technology lights up Burundi

New technology is lighting up homes in country where civil war left much of the infrastructure destroyed.

    African leaders are meeting in the Senegalese capital Dakar to discuss infrastructure funding.

    That is especially important for countries like Burundi, where much of its infrastructure was destroyed during the civil war.

    Only around three percent of its people have access to electricity, but new technology is helping to light up more homes.
