School Project in Bukoba/Tanzania

In spring 2023, the VoltaViewAfrica team supported the installation of a powerhouse that supplies both electricity and clean water for the school’s students and neighboring households. At the same time, the powerhouse will be used to train the students in the use of solar technology, lithium-ion batteries and the production of clean water. This project was supported by the NextEnergy Foundation, the Rotary Club of Goslar and the Fraunhofer HHI.

The Watoto wa Africa Orphanage

The Watoto Wa Africa orphanage in Mwanza/Tanzania is an institution in great need, as it has no or only irregular electricity and no drinking water. Its only source of water is the collection of rainwater in large tanks. In spring 2023, there was a typhoid epidemic with fatalities. To support the orphanage, VoltaViewAfrica will install a Powerhouse by the end of this year, which will provide electricity and clean drinking water for the orphanage. This project is supported by the Rotary Club of Goslar.
