PicoSol's activities in Cambodia offer us a good case to learn how to provide our added value: To start by realizing a number of pilot projects, in order to become familliar with the country, and to continue with building up capacity in the field of solar energy. With this capacity we will be able to establish bigger projects and to introduce solar energy as the most logical and sustainable energy option. Below some selected projects are found.

In West-Papua (the Indonesian part of Papua, the former Irian Jaya) we co-operate with Stichting Rajori, a Dutch foundation that supports several projects at the island of Biak (North to the main island). In 2007 a village water supply has been established for Sowek village. In 2010 a second solar pump has been placed near Sawendi, the next village. For projects in West-Papua, please click HERE .
In Uganda, we co-operate with Kyoga Relief Fund, a Dutch foundation with a support programme in Kumi, East Uganda. In the period 2008-2012 we contributed to the formulation and realization of an energy project at Kumi Hospital, aiming to refurbish the energy system and save energy of Kumi Hospital. This challenging project has been realized under auspician of Ouke en Hanneke Dijkstra in 2011-2012, who moved to the place for 18 month as volunteers. For projects in Uganda, please click HERE.
