Power is a major issue that poses problems to developers in 3rd world countries. There's often a way around this problem. It is a culture thing for people in 3rd world countries to share their resources. A neighbor can turn on his generating set to power up his house and people from two streets away will bring their devices to come charge them up. The problem is often that people don't have a way to know where there is power and when. Most times they end up walking distances to where they thought there will be power only to get there and find that there is none.

What it does

The app is a public forum where users by clicking a button can indicate if there's electrical power at an area or a location. Using push notifications people who have signed up can then get notified when there's light in an area.
