VIDA meets our South Sudanese Solar Partner

Tuesday, November 05, 2013 mick

At the Global Humanitarian Technology Conference in San Jose California VIDA participates in discussions involving the emergence of economically sustainable solar power installations in developing countries. VIDA also had the opportunity to meet one of our amazing partners, Mou Riiny, a former ‘Lost Boy’ from South Sudan. While VIDA and Mou continue to develop our partnership, Mou has started his own solar business in South Sudan that has garnered great results. Mou’s start-up enterprise, SunGate Solar, provides poor villagers with electricity they can afford. As SunGate scales over the next few years, many rural South Sudanese will be the direct beneficiaries of the electricity delivered as well as the training and jobs created to grow and sustain the business. This is a model VIDA believes in and supports. 

VIDA Executive Director meets with partner Mou Riiny to discuss future collaborations.
