Energy is an important basis for prosperity and social development. More than 600 million people in Africa do not have access to a reliable power supply and therefore rely on candles, kerosene lamps or diesel generators: expensive, unreliable and health-damaging solutions.
We promote the spread of solar energy. It is reliable, affordable and environmentally friendly. And it easily meets the energy needs of households, schools, health stations or businesses.
We promote local solar crafts. Small and medium-sized enterprises are important factors in the fight against poverty and job creation. That’s why we always use donor-funded projects to support local solar companies.
A dual approach that has been proven since 2003.
We use solar energy:
- On village development
- In schools
- In small and medium-sized enterprises
- To improve the harvest
- For better health care
We promote the local solar trade:
- We train
- We support young entrepreneurs
- We create jobs
- We make micro-credits
- We alleviate poverty
