We are building a network of Solar Ambassadors to boost access to affordable clean energy and energy efficient technologies like clean cook stoves, solar lamps and water purifiers. Through our sustainable business model we serve underprivileged off-grid communities in Uganda by training and supporting young local technicians and entrepreneurs with the right skills and tools to start and manage their businesses. This creates jobs for the young people while guaranteeing access to high quality products and services to their communities.

CITARD is focused on using technology to improve the lives of people living in rural communities. We source for technologies that are affordable, durable and have great potential to improve the lives of poor people.


 Our main interest is in making clean energy and energy efficient technologies available to all communities through donating a solar lamp, long term financing and direct sales of solar products, clean cook stoves and water purifiers.
