GoSolarAfrica team will host Nigeria's first Solar Powered Viewing Centre for the FIFA 2010 World Cup tournament at Iwerokun community of Eti Osa East local government area of Lagos State all through the Football season.

To holding back this from happening, the go SolarAfrica team is making the community Live and Green during this season. The go SolarAfrica team shall likewise hold sessions on solar training to equip the youth with income generating skills towards the emerging Green Collar economy.
