Technology Deficit in Africa, and the CIS Solution

Thanks to the guidance of CIS’s dedicated adviser and technical partners, our Solar4School prototyping process has been smooth. Corresponding product design layout shall be ready by May, covering all technical aspects from electric circuit diagram to component list and specification. Although Solar4School system is targeted towards schools in Eastern Africa, we adhere ourselves to European safety standards. Consequently, we deliver the safest experience for our partner schools.


Due to various factors including education, labor cost, and rule of law, Africa faces a huge technology deficit. Most technologies are developed from the West and for the West, which often ignore the needs of African users. At CIS, we work to bridge this gap, by making use of existing technologies and turning them into pan-African heritage.
