In partnership with the Italian NGO ICU, GLICE Burundi organized professional trainings in solar energy, equipment, installations and maintenance for young people in the province of Bujumbura Rural and Kirundo.
With a duration of three years, the training aims to train young technicians on the use and maintenance of solar energy in four provinces of the country, Bujumbura Rural, Kirundo, Ruyigi and Rutana. Burundi has an enormous energy deficit, especially upcountry. The primary objective of this training is to provide to the youth professional skills to create jobs in renewable energies and to overcome the lack of electricity in their communities.
At the end of the training, GLICE intends to support the young people trained in their empowerment projects, whether it is in creating companies specialized in solar energy. A young and developing industry, the photovoltaic energy market is the future for Burundi.
