Description of the project: Since 2018, the Solar Age project supports Syrian women refugees in Turkey. The Solar Engineering Course, a 10-day theoretical and practical training in solar energy, benefitted 200 women refugees. Among them, 20 have also been trained to build EFE (Energy For Everyone) solar batteries, which are sold on the local market to generate revenues.
The EFE batteries are specifically designed for the needs of refugees. They integrate a flashlight for SOS signals and provide an autonomous source of energy for mobile phones to facilitate life-saving communication. The program additionally offers educational and language courses to children refugees.
