    Africa, as we all know is a very under-developed region. Thousands of children are undernourished whereas the employment opportunities are also very meager. With the new concept of solar powered irrigation, the conditions there have become better there. Not only is there more employment opportunity because of the installation of the solar panels, but the irrigation allows for more and better quality of food to be produced within the country. This improvement has been seen in the sub-Saharan Africa. Interestingly, only 4-percent of the cropland in sub-Saharan Africa is irrigated, most communities rely on rain-fed agriculture.
