Solarize Uganda Now (SUN)
Our Flagship Program
We're on a mission to electrify 50 schools by 2025. With our unique, sustainable project design, schools receive their new solar light system free of charge. By contributing a portion of their old electricity bill each month, they help All We Are solarize new schools.
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.
Sustainability in Action
All We Are designs and installs a solar system at a school in Uganda completely free of charge.
Each month for a year, the school is required to
make a sustainability payment. This money is used for maintenance and future projects.
Pay It Forward
The school administration helps us select another school site for the project.
Solar Changes Everything
Our schools’ power bills go down as much as 80% after making the switch.
Schools can count on reliable energy.
Pay It Forward
Our headmasters tell us when the lights go on, motivation and attendance go up.
