GoSol on the road to Kenya

Posted Friday 1 April 2016 by Eva Wissenz.

In this vblog, Lorin Symington is sharing his concerns, determinations and... tiredness before leaving to Kenya for our project in cooperation with the Weconomy program of World Vision Finland.
It’s not an easy life to try solving energy poverty!! Lorin is our best builder. He prototyped, built, maintained and improved dozens of solar concentrators in Mexico, Canada, Haiti, Mali, South Africa, France and Finland. As we are a team of field people, we all would have loved to be with him in Kenya but even at distance the connection is strong and we share our best vibes with him!


Starting in Kenya with World Vision

Posted Tuesday 29 March 2016 by Eva Wissenz.

Almost all our team was in Paris to meet with our partners, Fondation Rexel and Fondation Deloitte, and briefed Lorin before his departure to Kenya to start a great project in cooperation with World Vision Finland and World Vision Kenya. Here is for you a short glimpse of this prep moment.


Meeting the Yier Ngima Support Group in Kenya

Posted Tuesday 17 November 2015 by Eva Wissenz.

World Vision is one of the biggest NGOs in the world, in the field every day to support compassionate, educational and sustainable actions. Through the Weconomy program of World Vision Finland, we have started a partnership to bring our solar tech to Kenya, showcase the Sol4 oven in two communities and support people’s access to a free, clean and efficient energy.

The Yier Ngima Support Group is producing organic peanut butter and the women could benefit from solar thermal in the drying and roasting processes.

This group is also supporting HIV affected people and orphans in the area and innovates with new activities such as beekeeping and poultry. By helping these groups to thrive in their own businesses, we can support the families’ income generation, empower the women and support the children of these villages.

With the Weconomy program of World Vision Finland and in collaboration with World Vision Kenya and the local women’s groups we will organize next Spring a training session and implementation project.
