Charge-up Ghana: our vision

SVAfrica supports entrepreneurship and youth education. Together with our partner NGO Village Exchange Ghana we established a renewable energy competence center in Eastern Ghana that offers training and professional opportunities in electricity and solar power. Our vision is to enable women and disadvantaged students to take their destiny in their own hands, and to make affordable green energy available to everyone.

Help us build the future

SVAfrica's mission is to provide education and practical training to underprivileged youth and to develop innovative solutions for local markets that harness local resources. Our school offers practical and theoretical courses in electricity and solar power, as well as courses in English, math, entrepreneurship, information technology, and general knowledge. Students are trained to become certified electricians and solar power experts. Many of our students have passed examinations for various degrees of the official Ghanaian National Vocational Training Institute.

We need your support to empower women to take their destiny in their own hands

SVAfrica believes that what men can do women can do . This philosophy is shared by SVAfrica's partners and is the base for all our projects. Currently there are only 5 female certified electricians who are registered with the Ghana Energy Commission. It is time to empower more women to enter this highly regarded and booming profession.

We need your support to take the next step in developing our renewable energy center

Our students not only receive practical and theoretical training in electricity and solar power, but we also offer employment opportunities. We started off with locally produced solar USB chargers and continued our endeavor with the development and manufacturing of solar mini grid systems that are adapted for local needs. With the help of a new electricity lab and planned improvements in the solar lab and the computer lab, we want to take it to the next level in 2018.
