Innovation Africa organization receives UN award
Innovation: Africa is a non-profit organization that brings Israeli innovation to African villages. Founded in 2008, in five years Innovation Africa has provided light, clean water, food and proper medical care to more than 450,000 people in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Malawi and Uganda.

Innovation Africa was honored with the Innovation Award at the United Nations Global South-South Development Expo in Nairobi. The organization was presented with the award after Sivan Yaari, the Founder & President of Innovation: Africa, spoke about the work of bringing Israeli solar technology to power rural African schools, medical clinics, orphanages and water pumping systems.

From renewable energy to agriculture to IT and more, Israel is a leader in the global innovation sector. In Africa, these innovations have the power to save lives. With similar climates and natural resources, Israeli solar, water and agricultural technologies are a natural fit for African villages. Innovation Africas mission is to share the knowledge and expertise developed in Israel with people and communities that need it.
