The Solektra International’s team is very proud to announce that it received on November 24th in Lagos two awards from the West African Power Industry Convention: the Akon Lighting Africa project was recognized successively “BEST RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECT 2015” and “CSR INITIATIVE OF THE YEAR”. This recognition, which comes coms from industry experts and other companies, sends a very positive to Solektra International’s teams and all those who, like them, believe that solar technologies are the best way to accelerate the electrification of Africa.
The three founders of Solektra International, Akon, Samba Bathily and Thione Niang, like to present themselves as “social entrepreneurs”: with this project, they seek to have a positive impact on African rural communities by creating jobs, trade – and hope. The ultimate goal is to empower Africans and give them the opportunity to drive growth onto their continent, through a better access to energy.
