The Sahay Solar Association
The non-profit Sahay Solar Association aims to play an active role in the distribution of solar energy on the African continent, especially in Ethiopia.
On a concrete level, we:
offer training in the field of solar energy for lecturers, students and other interested parties at Ethiopian universities
implement solar projects with a social character in Ethiopia together with local experts
enable young engineers to establish economic livelihoods in the solar sector
build a sustainable support network with partners from science and industry
The predominant goal of our activities is to establish sustainable structures in Ethiopia in order to have the skilled workers needed to develop a self-sustaining social business concept in the medium term. The donation-financed social solar projects thus play a key role in building these basic structures as a bridge between theory and practice.
In Germany, the association is being represented by the board members Max Pohl (1st Chairman), Sebastian Zenz (2nd Chairman), Amelie Pohl (Treasurer) and Alexander Jordan (Secretary) and it is supported by numerous members and organizations.

The Sahay Project Villages
The Sahay Solar Association has electrified more than 30 social facilities (schools and health centers) in collaboration with Arba Minch University (AMU) since the beginning of its activities. As a result, several thousand inhabitants of the Gamo Gofa Zone can benefit from higher quality education or better health care. On the map you can get an overview of the projects realized so far:
