Innovation: Africa celebrates 15 years of bringing solar energy and clean water to over 4 million people across 900 villages

 Innovation: Africa is a non-profit organization that uses Israeli solar and water technology to electrify schools and medical centers and to pump clean water across 10 African countries.

New at iA

We are very proud of our CEO and Founder, Sivan Yaari who has been listed as one of the most influential Jews in the world for the year 2023.


Over 600 million people across Africa do not have access to electricity and over 450 million people do not have access to clean water.

The Challenge

Our solution and cost

The solution is simple. A one-time cost of $20,000 will electrify an entire school or medical center using iA’s Energy Box.

A one-time cost of $65,000 covers the cost for the construction of a large solar water pumping system in a village of a minimum of 3,000 people and includes the following 8 steps.

Every donation has the power to make a difference

Donate $25 to bring water to 1 person in Africa


100% of every donation goes to project costs, as our overhead is fully covered. Thanks to our UN-award-winning Remote Monitoring system, our donors have a satellite view of the village and track live, the amount of water pumped or solar produced at any given time.




Team & Contractors

 iA has over 130 full-time employees, mainly engineers and works with 40 local contractors across Africa. At each water project, 10 community members are hired and paid by the contractor and will ensure the sustainability of the project following its completion.

Innovation: Africa has Special Consultative Status at The United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and has received multiple awards, including the “Innovation Award” from the UN.
