School project in Kaolack/Senegal

The Brusch&Ritscher Foundation enables the construction of a school center in Kaolack/Senegal, resulting from a school and town partnership between the Lower Saxony town of Osterode and Kaolack in northwest of Senegal. VoltaViewAfrica supports this project by installing a powerhouse system to supply electricity and drinking water.

In November 2023, the first system components were brought to Kaolack, and the assembly and installation of the system took place in May 2024. The system is now operational.

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.



Fishing is the main source of income for many families in sub-Saharan Africa along the west and east African coasts and the large lakes in the central parts of the continent, e.g. Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and Malawi Lake. The fishing boats are mainly operated with petrol outboard engines.
