Solar Aid - Power to the People
Solar Aid is an organization based in London that is funded by both corporate donations as well as charitable foundations and trusts.
Their purpose is to empower the world's poorest populations with clean, renewable energy that can improve all aspects of daily life, health, nutrition, education and economics.
They work with non-governmental organizations to train local communities in how to install and operate small scale solar power systems in community hospitals and schools, and also DIY solar and small solar devices such as solar lanterns and solar radios. They also help local people to create microbusinesses in solar energy.
They are focusing their efforts on rural communities in the greatest need, in sub-Saharan Africa. Please visit their site at Solar-Aid.org
