Announcing Partnership with Plan International
and SmartUp Factory Uganda

Posted Friday 13 July 2018 by Urs Riggenbach.

In partnership with Plan International Finland and Plan International Uganda, we are starting a new cooperation in Uganda providing our SOL5 solar concentrators and educational trainings to the SmartUp Factory program.

SmartUp Factory is driven by the idea that "since the poor and marginalized youth experience the challenges in their community and society first hand they are in a crucial position to identify those challenges and come up with innovative solutions to them."

Every month, Plain International Uganda is welcoming 20-30 new youths to the
venue and they receive full access to the mentoring, trainings and equipment. The program is currently running in six locations in Uganda.

In this project, GoSol is providing SOL5 units, hands on trainings, theoretical lessons and support with the incubation of solar bakeries.

We are excited about this partnership and the potential to empower more and more entrepreneurs with our SOL5 through education.

SmartUp Factory has empowered over 3500 young people from Uganda with the skills needed for social entrepreneurship.
