iA's Mission

We are a team of dedicated problem solvers with a mission to bring Israeli solutions and know-how to those in need living in rural African villages. We are using solar energy to pump clean water and provide schools, orphanages and medical clinics with light and refrigeration to store vaccines and medicines.

Innovation Africa Projects

South Africa Innovation Africa Water and Solar Project

In the past 10 years, Innovation: Africa has brought Israeli solar, agricultural and water technologies to over 170 projects in 8 African countries. Each project is tracked live, thanks to our Israeli remote monitoring technology.

About iA


For the past 9 years, Innovation: Africa has been transforming nearly 1 million people's lives with the benefits of Israeli technologies that enable clean water in rural African villages for the first time. We believe in the power of water to truly impact generations and future generations. Water is essential for human survival and generates economic advancement wherever it flows.

Israeli Connection


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. Our mission is to share the knowledge and expertise developed in Israel with people and communities that need it.

How it all works.

innovation:Africa (iA) installs a solar powered deep water well accessing water that is trapped in the aquifers below the ground in regions where there is drought and hunger. 

iA's remotely monitored solar water pumping systems provide over 20,000 liters of clean water per day per village. 

Throughout the village, there is enough water for drinking and also for implementing Israeli developed drip irrigation systems. 

This allows families to grow more food with less water and provides a means for financial independence by selling the excess crops at markets.

A pump is inserted into the shaft with a solar panel connection to reach the aquifer. This water is then deposited into a water tower that local villagers help construct. 

When water is needed, it is propelled by gravity to destinations around the village. By remote monitoring, the installed system is resistant to breakdown, vandalism, or theft, problems typically faced by water systems installed by many aid organizations. 

Smart technology is used to update key information such as how much water is stored in the tank or whether there are issues with any equipment; all of this is run remotely from Israel.
