Who We Are

Powering Potential enhances education through technology in developing countries by providing learners with the tools they need to succeed as 21st century global citizens.

Our award-winning solar-powered computer programs deliver digital libraries (no internet required) and training to teachers and students in remote villages that have no access to the national electrical grid.

Support Our Efforts

During COVID-19 it is more important than ever for students in developing countries to have access to digital information to protect themselves and their communities. 

We respect the values of local cultures: cooperation over competition and community over the individual.

“If real development is to take place, the people have to be involved”  – Julius Nyerere, the father of Tanzania

We partner with local communities

Our counterpart organization in Tanzania is the Potential Enhancement Foundation (PEF), an Energy Globe World Award finalist in 2019.

PEF collaborates with the Tanzanian government to install, maintain and expand our computer programs across the country.

Impacting Lives

With improved learning and technology literacy, students are better prepared to secure employment, continue higher education and become productive global citizens.

“It is unhidden truth that is going to have an immeasurable impact on youth and all the people in rural areas, as they are going to be exposed to the world of technology where they could meet plenty of social, economic, academic and political opportunities. I have trust in the Powering Potential team. I believe it is the team that will be mentioned in the History of Tanzania in coming days.”
