Tumba Smart Village

On the occasion of Transform Africa Summit 2018, the Ministry of Information Technology and Communications of Rwanda, the Smart Africa Association and ADS Group have concluded as 3-year Memorandum of Understanding to implement the Tumba Smart Village concept. This pioneering project was designed by the Government of Rwanda to leverage digital technologies to deliver products and services and transform rural business toward wellbeing and jobs creation. Under this MoU, ADS Group is committed to provide to the Tumba Community innovative solar solutions, including a solar and wi-fi powered Business center, solar street lights, solar lanterns and solar home systems, and mobile clinics to address local healthcare needs. The total value of these equipment is estimated to USD 100, 000. The Tumba Smart Village with its new equipment was officially presented opened to the public in September 2018.


Brightening Refugee Camps project should be included here as well.

With regards to our specific Solar Streets Lighting expertise, there have been key achievements in 2019 as Solektra teams in Rwanda managed to install 185 Solar Street Lights in 3 refugees camps and neighboring communities such as Gihembe camp, Kigeme and Nyabiheke. From a social perspective, the impact is significant as over 30,000 people are currently benefiting from
these solar streets Lights. These projects were all conducted in partnership with Practical Action, a charity very active to identify and promote smart solutions allowing to address climate change.

60 solar localities in Mali
AS part of the project “Access to modern energy through the realisation of 36,123 photovoltaic solar street lamps as a source of public lighting in 311 Villages and towns in Mali”, Solektra has been selected as a technical partner of the Malian State, with a specific responsibility in terms of supplying and installing 3,000 solar street lamps and 60 complete sets of maintenance equipment. This project aims to accelerate the electrification of rural areas (60 to date, 120 at the end of the project) in the regions of Ségou, Kayes, Sikasso and Koulikoro. The Malian authorities are responsible for providing a modern public lighting network, which will help to improve security, the development of income-generating activities at night as well as social cohesion.
