Let there be light

Our Solar Village

In order to be able to make a long-term contribution towards alleviating poverty, the Solar Energy Foundation our funding partner for this initiative has decided not to provide isolated and scattered schools, health stations or huts or rural houses with solar energy. Instead, a policy of concentrated and comprehensive support to supply entire villages is pursued.

In this arrangement, individual households as well as all public buildings (schools, health centers and churches) in a chosen solar village are provided with solar power. Furthermore, solar water pumps, water disinfection systems and street lamps are also installed.
