What we do

We apply solar power where it makes a critical difference. In places where there is no (reliable) electricity, it enables light, access to water, storage of food, medicines and vaccines, and functioning of essential equipment  and more. Solar energy empowers communities to take significant steps of improvement. 

How

We assess the needs and ‘plug into’ local initiatives that are impacting their communities in a tangible and sustainable way. Through our local presence and close cooperation with local contractors we co-develop small scale solar systems with related technologies (batteries, pumps, etc). Financing of our projects is achieved through Crowdfunding, in combination with the ongoing support from our Partners.

Why

Each of us could have been born and grow up in completely different circumstances, 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 is less fortunate than ourselves. In pursuit of – sometimes even just a little – more equality.
Part of our aim is for Sopowerful to offer an opportunity for individuals and organizations to join us in making a significant, tangible and lasting impact.
