Local Project Officer Assistant
 

SolarAid is a charity, tackling two of mankind’s the greatest hurdles - global warming and poverty - by harnessing our greatest resource, the Sun.
 
Over the next decade the focus of our mission is to banish the kerosene lamp from Africa (our big hairy audacious goal). 

Kerosene fuel is brutally expensive, dangerous and extremely bad for your health (and for the planet). 

Solar provides a safe and better alternative to lighting which enables families to use the money they save for whatever they wish.
 
We have always believed in business based solutions and to that end we wholly own a company, SunnyMoney that sells solar lights to communities in Africa. 

This approach ensures we treat people as customers, listening carefully to their needs, and also ensures sustainability of the work we do, engaging local traders to stock and repair solar products. 

We also install solar power on schools, clinics and community centres.
 
Our aim is for SunnyMoney to become profitable in the future.
 
We have had some exciting developments with sales of solar lights rocketing this year and strong evidence of the impact solar lighting has on increasing the performance of schools
