WORLD SOLAR FUND
We introduce solar energy as a replacement for the current hazardous energy sources (kerosene, batteries, wood), to contribute to local and regional economic and social developments and hereby reduce the environmental and health effects. We aim to help people in crisis situations, people in refugee camps and people living in poverty in developing countries. We try to do this in cooperation with local NGO’s.
