The VisionSustainable energy for smart villages
Solar learning aims to improve school quality for children especially in rural off-grid areas. The main goals are educational training, local empowerment and better energy supply.
Our Mission Empowering children in Africa.
Rural areas with no electricity grid suffer under cost intensive basic energy services, like lighting and mobile phone charging. Solar learning wants to support communities in a way, that they benefit of a sustainable energy production and education about solar energy. The idea is to increase opportunities for future generations while delivering basic energy services for households.
We believe in the creative power of local people and enterprises. Therefore production and sourcing of components for our projects are meant to stay as regional as possible. Our support focuses on knowledge transfer and donations to allow projects to start. We take care that our projects are designed in a way that after a starting phase, communities can organize themselves for a successful implementation and sustainability in the long run.
