Cooperation Partners

Arba Minch University (AMU), Arba Minch, Ethiopia

Arba Minch University (AMU) in southern Ethiopia was founded in the late 1980’s and currently enrolls around 16,000 students, making it one of the largest universities in Ethiopia. The university was founded focusing on water-related issues, as Arba Minch Water Technology Institute (AWTI) and has developed into a top-level university hosting the institute and five colleges ranging from business studies to natural or social sciences.
Since the first meetings in 2008, Sahay Solar and AMU have established a very fruitful and reliable cooperation. The common aim is to further expand the AMU Solar Competence Center (SCC), including the opening of a newly build solar laboratory and regular local and foreign expert trainings, and to implement solar projects in surrounding rural areas as part of the community service, which AMU provides based on its mission statement.
