Innov8 Africa designs and supports solar energy systems for schools and solar study lamps for children. Through our Solar Learning module, students can learn the mechanics of and how to construct and maintain solar systems. Even schools with electricity can save on electrical bills through adjunct solar arrays.
Students often walk 6 to 10 kilometers (4-6 miles) to and from their schools. On the equator, the sun rises at 6:30 a.m. and sets at 6:30 p.m. Often there is no electricity at home, and we have distributed approximately 5,000 solar study lamps to students in Kenya and Dominica.
Innov8 Africa is the trade name for Lee Brenneisen Foundation, a tax exempt “public charity” under §501(c)(3) of the US Internal Revenue Code.
