Portfolio

600 million live without access to clean, affordable lighting in Sub-Saharan Africa. But the reality is that 25% of these people will never receive solutions because they live in areas that are perceived as too risky or remote. Qorax was founded to bring vital electricity access here, first and foremost in Somalia, Somaliland and the DRC.
