What we do

We implement solar power where it matters most: where it makes a critical difference in places where there is no (reliable) electricity. It enables light, running water, storage of food, medicines and vaccines, functioning of essential equipment  and more. Solar energy (em)powers communities to take significant steps of improvement. 

How

We ‘plug into’ small organizations (NGO’s, charities) which are impacting their communities in a tangible and sustainable way. Through close cooperation with local contractors we bring technical knowledge to implement a solar power system with related components (batteries, fridges, pumps, lights, etc).
Financing of our projects is achieved through crowdfunding in combination with company donations. 100% of every crowdfunding donation is used to make these projects reality.

Why

Each person could have been born and grown up in completely different circumstances and with very different opportunities. We believe that as humans we are meant to live for more than just our own interest and to share with who has less, in pursuit of – sometimes even just a little – more equality.
Our aim is for sopowerful to offer an opportunity for individuals and businesses to bring this vision into practice with a significant, tangible and lasting impact on lives of people at the ‘bottom of the pyramid’.
