Village Help for South Sudan has pioneered in the implementation and deployment of solar energy to poor rural citizens who have never had access to electricity. Beginning as a pilot through a partnership with IEEE [https://smartvillage.ieee.org/], the VHSS program supplied communities with a central solar-powered charging station and portable take-home battery packs to light homes and small businesses. For a small monthly fee paid to the charging station franchise operator, program participants were able to light their homes with non-polluting electricity without the usual heavy up-front cost associated with solar energy. VHSS was the first organization in South Sudan to offer an affordable and sustainable electricity solution to the energy impoverished rural citizens. In addition to our energy business solutions, we have also provided the training and management support required for success in rural South Sudan.
