Africa (iA), a non-profit organisation, and Bayport Management Ltd, a multinational financial services provider in Tanzania have created an alliance to help communities across the African continent to improve their living conditions through access to clean water and lighting.
iA has already installed 18 solar systems in Tanzania, 16 of them powering schools and medical clinics in the Bagamoyo and Chalinze regions. Now, with the support of Bayport’s network in Dodoma, iA’s work in the country will be extended.
The partnership between the two organisations will greatly improve health and education thereby having a positive impact on the lives of people across Tanzania through the use of solar energy and water technologies.
iA is a US-based organisation with a mission to bring Israeli solar, water and agricultural technologies to rural African villages. Its goal is to reach 1000 villages, impacting six million people, over the next seven years.
“The partnership with iA is a good fit for us,” says Stuart Stone, joint CEO of Bayport. “Both our organisations are employing technology and innovation to give people in emerging markets access to the means to improve their lives and build a more secure future.”
“Bayport’s support enables us to offer solutions to remote villages in Tanzania, which allow communities to uplift themselves from extreme poverty and provide the tools to be independent,” says Sivan Ya’ari, Founder and CEO of Innovation: Africa. “We are extremely grateful to partner with Bayport and look forward to the evolution of this fruitful collaboration.”
