Mission:
Jewish Heart for Africa is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that brings sustainable Israeli technologies to African villages.

Our first initiative, Project Sol, arranges for the financing and installation of Israeli solar panels to power schools, clinics, and water pumping systems in Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. Project Sol provides light for education, solar powered refrigeration for storage of life-saving medicines and vaccines, and water pumping systems to the millions that still lack access to clean water.

Our second initiative, Project Agro, brings Israeli drip irrigation techniques to African villagers to improve local agriculture. Using the technology that made Israel’s desert bloom, our drip irrigation systems help farmers to grow more crops, prevent starvation and promote economic growth.

Since our founding in 2008, we have completed 23 projects, impacting 70,000 African people with Israeli technology. We provide for sustainable economic development in Africa, all while investing in Israeli innovation and improving Israel’s image around the world.
Results:
40,000 African villagers now have access to energy in their schools and medical clinics. Over 1,000 children have received vaccines stored in our solar refrigerators
