Our convictions

We believe that Africa can – and should – leverage its own resources to develop itself. But only with a business approach can we successfully scale up these solutions likely to transform the daily life of African communities. Work completed so far by NGOs or foundations, while highly commendable, is indeed often limited in terms of scope and impact.

We therefore need African actors, capable of operating at several levels. On the one hand, we need to be demanding and source the best international expertise and the best equipment, i.e. resistant, adapted to the local climate conditions and easy to maintain. Secondly, what matters is to address issues where they happen: and we have deliberately focused on rural Africa, in addition to Urban areas, where today 65% of the population still lives in the dark after sunset and often has to undertake long journeys to drink poor quality water. Finally, we must be able to offer approaches adapted to the needs of Africa. Attaching a maintenance contract to an installation contract through local capacity building, proposing a pre-financing system or other unique financing schemes, imagining an off-grid installation that combines access to energy and access to the Internet and Government services: these are all examples of our work and evidence that effective impact comes when you know how to make accessible truly transformative services and products touching on the all the basic needs of the citizens.
