Our solar technicians in Togo introduce themselves

With our goal to promote the use of renewable energy, we operate 20 photovoltaic and solar thermal systems throughout Togo, mostly on rural health clinics. These not only need to be professionally installed, but also maintained twice a year so that they can produce electricity and hot water sustainably and in the long term to ensure clean and safe health care. Here we would like to give the floor to three of our long-time solar technicians.

Farewell to Dr Kadjassi

After 13 years with URBIS FOUNDATION TOGO, Dr. Bâ-Traoré Kadjassi, who was responsible for the health sector, retired. Over the years, we have greatly expanded this sector. It all started with a request from a small health station that wanted to provide medicines for the less fortunate.
