TSO’s mission is to help remote African schools and communities achieve long-term, sustainable development, and facilitate exciting career opportunities in clean energy for rural youth.

TSO supports education and cultivates prosperity in Africa by providing safe, clean and reliable solar lighting and electricity to remote, economically-challenged communities. In addition, we help promising youth in those communities (our “Oaks”) develop new careers in clean energy, primarily solar. We deliver a combination of financial support, mentorship (by local “Oak Leaders”) and relevant work experience via internships to maximize the Oaks’ ability to achieve their goals. Our vision is that our Oaks not only will become financially self-sufficient but also will “pay it forward”, mentoring and paving the way for other youth.
