The Strongest Oak Foundation (TSO) is an Alberta-based, non-profit organization that supports disadvantaged African youth through internships and financial aide. Through our Solar Energy Program, we equip schools in remote African villages with clean (solar) power, giving local youth an opportunity to explore career opportunities in renewable energy through “green” internships.

The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.

Yamané & Voho Campaign

Early in February 2018, the schools and teachers’ residences of Yamané and Voho had electricity for the first time! See the projects in progress in our latest video. One of the next steps is to purchase portable solar lanterns for the school children to take home, giving them an affordable, safe and reliable source of home lighting to promote home study. If you would like to help, please donate.
