While looking to give back to the world through our adventures we came across a novel idea in Solar-Aid that captured the main two issues facing our plant today which are climate change and global poverty. Solar-Aid helps to combat both by bringing clean, renewable power to the poorest people in the world.
Barely 2% of rural Africa has access to the electricity grid yet many regions of Africa have the highest levels of sunshine in the world. Solar-Aid works with these remote and disadvantaged communities, helping them tap into an abundant source of free, clean and renewable energy - the sun!
Solar-Aid works in rural areas across East and Southern Africa; installing solar on schools, community centers and clinics. This is known as macrosolar.
