Projects supported

Solar Solidarity International aims at raising funds to support projects using renewable technology in particular solar photovoltaic technology to provide energy to the developing world.
Energy is very important for the development : it brings access to water (purification, pumping...), to quality education (computers, multimedia tools...), to medical cares (vaccines conservation...) and to telecommunication (phone, internet...). Bringing renewable energy means promoting environmental respect, fighting against climate change and building a world of solidarity and Peace.
