Don Bosco: a new partner to bring Solar Entrepreneurship to Refugees Settlement in Kenya, 2022

Posted 15 November 2021 by Urs Riggenbach.

With Don Bosco Jugendhilfe Weltweit we have found a new project partner dedicated to empowering youths. Active all over the world, this organization supports hundreds of vocational training centers, across Africa and beyond. Our cooperation starts in Kenya, with two vocational schools, one of them in the Kakuma region, hosting the world’s largest refugee site. Together we empower youths with the equipment and skills to become solar entrepreneurs.
