Urbis Foundation
Welcome

As a charitable foundation, we are dedicated to promoting the use of renewable energies and protecting our climate and environment. Through our work we wish to sensitise for a more sustainable use of our resources and to offer more people a perspective for a brighter future.

Regionally, we focus our activities on Sub-Saharan Africa. A special emphasis lies on our partner country Togo, where we have been implementing projects since 2002. Additionally, we offer funding support to initiatives in Eastern Europe and East Africa, which advocate the use and implementation of renewable energies.
