Solar Social Enterprises

What is a social enterprise?

Social Enterprises combine entrepreneurial spirit with a special social mission. While utilizing mechanisms of the market economy, social entrepreneurs offer innovative and sustainable solutions to social problems.

The »Solar for All« initiative supports social entrepreneurs targeting rural electrification in developing countries through solar energy.

Fabio Rosa (IDEAAS), a Brazilian social entrepreneur:

"I am trying to build a little part of the world in which I would like to live. A project only makes sense to me when it proves useful to make people happier and the environment more respected, and when it represents a hope for a better future. (...) With our intelligence, knowledge and culture, it is not necessary to destroy the environment.“
