Corona emergency aid: solar for health stations

In the partner countries of the Stiftung Solarenergie (Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia) rural health stations for the local population are the basis for medical care.

These health stations are particularly important for the goal of slowing or preventing the spread of the corona virus.

We switch the light on

The people in developing countries do not need our alms. They need our competence to develop their own abilities, to strengthen their own initiative and thus improve their living situation themselves. 

We combine social and financial sustainability:

  • We install solar systems in rural areas.
  • We provide micro credits.
  • We train solar technicians.
  • We create sustainable jobs.

Training creates jobs

For many young people, the high demand for solar energy offers the chance of finding a job. The prerequisite is a good education, in theory and practice.

Especially for solar technicians we have developed a dual training concept, unique in Africa, which combines theoretical training in solar technology and management with internships in a local solar company. This increases the chance of finding a job after the course.


May 2020

As part of our Corona aid programme, the Kenyan Solar Energy Foundation has equipped three rural health stations with solar energy: Migori, Olenarau, Narok.


In Uganda, the installation of solar energy in the first 20 health stations was delayed because our partner Sendea had to wait a long time for the necessary special permit for the travel and movement of the solar technicians. The installations will now begin by four local solar companies simultaneously on May 18, 2020.


The DOEN Foundation (NL), as part of its Corona relief support, has secured the existence of our Ugandan partner Sendea with a donation until the end of the year: The administrative costs until the end of the year (salary, rent, communication) are covered.



March 2020

The activities in the solar village of Barimbate (Isiolo) are nearing their end: 700 households will be equipped with basic solar energy at an affordable price. In addition, schools will be supplied with solar power for classrooms and for school children.
