A bright future for children in Africa

Welcome!

We want to improve school quality for children in rural areas off-grid. Our main goals are educational training, local empowerment and better energy supply for regions with no electrical grid. Meet future solar technicians in Africa.

future solar technicians

idea of solar learning

Rural areas with no electricity grid suffer under cost intensive basic energy services, like lighting and mobile phone charging. From this starting point solar learning wants to deliver energy services and education about solar energy. We want to increase opportunities for future generations while delivering basic energy services for households. Have a look how this could work.

light

 

 

School children get an LED-light

 

  • LED-light is financed by supporters
  • LED-light has a battery
  • mobile phone chargeing via built-in USB-port

 


Energy

 

 

School facility gets a solar system with photovoltaic panels

  • Cables bring solar power to a room with charge controller, buffer battery and charging equipment
  • Charge controller and buffer battery are in lockable box underground

Distribution

 

 

Charger has many plugs to connect LED-lights for charging

 



 

 

 

Look at a school day with solar learning for schoolgirl Kianga.


Morning

 

 

In the morning Kianga arrives at school and gives her LED-light to a teacher for charging.

 


Learning

 

 

During the day Kianga learns about solar power, dc-electricity and battery technology. Her LED-light is charged during that time.

 


collecting energy

 

 

When leaving school Kianga takes her light back home.

 


bright nights

 

 

In the night Kianga and her family have one more light to study, cook or play.

 


After a school education with solar learning Kianga can be the next solar technician in her village!
