Africa (iA), a non-profit organisation, and Bayport Management, a multinational financial services provider with a strong presence in Tanzania, have formed a partnership to help communities across Africa to improve their living conditions through access to clean water and lighting.

The NPO has already implemented 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.

Bayport Tanzania, through the provision of a vehicle and other logistical support have enabled iA to commence a project in the Dodoma region of Tanzania to install a solar system at the Bumbuta Health Centre, as well as a pump system to supply Iyoli village with clean water.

The collaboration between the two companies will help to improve health and better education, 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 1,000 villages, impacting six million people, over the next seven years.
