Big project launch in Uganda

This month, our project to strengthen the use of solar energy in northern Uganda kicked off with a big inception event. Together with our long-term partner Action for Child Social and Economic Transformation (ACSET), we will actively strengthen the solar sector in the Lango sub-region over the next one and a half years.

New project to strengthen the photovoltaic sector in Central Togo

This year, URBIS FOUNDATION started a new project in Sokodé, Togo. Over the next five years, URBIS will support solar electricians on their way to self-employment as solar electricians. In addition, we will jointly build a solar training centre with a PV demonstration system and construct PV systems for local NGOS and health sector facilities far from the electricity grid.

Start of the Funding Projects 2023

In 2023, the URBIS FOUNDATION will once again support exciting projects related to solar energy. From this year on, the special feature is that we will only support projects with a three-year duration. This way, we can support the solar installations more sustainably and in a longer term together with our partners.
