Best Foot Forward Consulting

Our partner in Zambia, Best Foot Forward Consulting, is a newly started company working to create opportunities and foster economic empowerment by kick-starting and growing small scale businesses.

Headed by Alexandra Frank, they are working to bring Little Sun light to the 80% of the population living without reliable access to electricity. Since its launch in June this year, they have been selling the lamps through a number of retail outlets, lodges, as well as through local sales agents in off-grid communities. To kick-start local businesses they have also been distributing a number of Little Sun business starter kits to selected youth groups, providing them with rigorous training on how to set up and manage their own profitable businesses.

Alexandra explains,

 

“I’ve been awestruck by the demand for small affordable light sources – not just in off-grid communities, but also in well-connected areas, where electricity is not only expensive, but also unreliable. Little Sun is affordable for most people here in Zambia and provides an immediate and healthy fix to a major daily problem.”
