The Management Team

Solar Afric will provides design, installation, maintenance, and repair of solar photovoltaic power systems to un-electrified homes in the communities. Solar systems will bring huge benefits to homes in Africa. They replace smoky, unsafe kerosene lamps with brighter light, allowing work, study and social activities after dark. They also power radios and cell phone chargers, enabling families to be in contact with the rest of the world.
