Solarize Uganda Now (SUN)

Our Flagship Program

We're on a mission to complete 50 installations by 2025. With our sustainable project design, communities receive access to affordable and clean energy.

Lighting Dark Schools

In Uganda and much of Africa, power is expensive, dirty and inconsistent, if it's available at all.  Dark classrooms inhibit learning and motivation.  Studying stops when the light does.  And computers are a nonstarter.  Poor power or no power limits the potential of the next generation.

The answer?  Sustainable solar power.

Hear from Our Headmasters

HM2

I believe solar will be more reliable and it will assure that students attend to their studies everyday. 

HM3

This is going to be a great relief for the school because maintaining power for a big institution using hydro power electricity is very expensive.  

HM1

A few months ago everything changed here. There was a blackout a week and a half long and we still had lights.
