Harvest season in Togo

It has been harvest season in Togo for a few weeks now and thus also on our training farm CPIA and in our project in the prefecture of Blitta. At CPIA, near Sokodé, maize was harvested, among other things. Our 18 trainee agroentrepreneurs work hand in hand with our farm team. Now the harvest of soy and rice is still to come.

Welcoming our team from Togo in Germany

To celebrate our anniversary, we invited six of our Togolese colleagues from the URBIS FOUNDATION TOGO to Germany. We also used this time together to further our knowledge and to spend time together. It is much nicer to see each other in person than to only meet virtually.


We celebrate our 20th anniversary

In October 2022, the URBIS FOUNDATION is 20 years old. We celebrated this milestone with the founding family, colleagues and long-time supporters of the foundation at an anniversary conference. It was especially nice to have six of our Togolese colleagues from the URBIS FOUNDATION Togo with us.

Over 1500 solar systems serviced in Uganda

Together with our partner ACSET Uganda we have successfully completed the ProREU project (Promotion of Renewable Energy Use in Uganda). An overview of the project can be found here.

The 50 Solar Extension Agents (SEAs) have been installing solar systems in their communities since the end of their training and have already serviced more than 1500 PV solar systems in the last 6 months.

Solar-powered water pump for girls' school in Tanzania

With support from the URBIS FOUNDATION, our project partner Tanzania Renewable Energy Association (TAREA) in Tanzania installed a solar-powered water pump at the Preiswerk Girls Secondary School in Ifakara. This replaced the emission-heavy diesel generator and the old severely stressed pump.

Our solar technicians in Togo introduce themselves

With our goal to promote the use of renewable energy, we operate 20 photovoltaic and solar thermal systems throughout Togo, mostly on rural health clinics. These not only need to be professionally installed, but also maintained twice a year so that they can produce electricity and hot water sustainably and in the long term to ensure clean and safe health care. Here we would like to give the floor to three of our long-time solar technicians.
