The company Solafrique was founded in 20014 to promote the use of solar energy in a commercially sustainable way.
It focuses on three complementary areas:
- the sale, installation and maintenance of solar equipment;
- the planning and budgeting of projects;
- the local training of craftsmen (electricians, plumbers, carpenters).
Solafrique plans to achieve economic sustainability while remaining a non-profit organisation, and focuses its efforts on applications improving the daily life of women and the comfort of communities such as schools, religious centers and dispensaries.
To improve living conditions and drive economic growth, five basic needs, which can all benefit durably from solar technology, must be addressed.
