SOFIA wants to fight poverty in an environmentally sustainable way. These two elements come together in our project ELKAP – Electrification of Kapanga.
Kapanga is a territory of ,more than 45,000 inhabitants in the remote southern Democratic Republic of the Congo, where there is no electricity. Through ELKAP, we are building a hydroelectric plant and a distribution network. Access to safe and stable energy will boost local development in a sustainable manner.
We are particularly happy and proud of the appreciation of our work by the European Commission, which contributed a significant part of the funds for this project.
