Africa Tech Challenges:
Elevating Skills, Empowering Youth


Time: 2014 - 2015

Location: Kenya

Partners: AVIC International

Intro: Throughout Africa, Chinese enterprises often face the complex task of securing proficient and capable labor while simultaneously contending with elevated levels of joblessness among the youth population. In a proactive response to this pressing issue, China House undertook a collaborative initiative with AVIC International to conceive and execute a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program known as "Africa Tech Challenges." This pioneering program was meticulously designed to offer comprehensive training to African youth, equipping them with essential engineering skills. By doing so, it aimed to empower these young individuals, transforming them into proficient, qualified workers ready to access meaningful employment opportunities in their respective fields.

Impact: Initiated by China House and later hosted directly by AVIC, the Africa Tech Challenges program has not only endured but thrived over the years. It remains an ongoing initiative, continuously expanding its reach and impact, providing valuable training and opportunities for African youth.

Distinguished as one of the rare CSR projects in Africa sponsored by a Chinese state-owned enterprise that aligns seamlessly with international standards, the Africa Tech Challenges program sets a high benchmark for responsible corporate engagement on the continent.


The program's success and positive influence have garnered widespread recognition, with prominent media outlets such as CCTV and CGTV featuring its remarkable achievements, further amplifying its reach and inspiring others to partake in similar endeavors.

Solar energy support 
in Ecuador


Time: 2023 - Ongoing

Location: Variouse locations in Ecuador

Partners: China Solar Power Group

Intro: In the Amazon region of Ecuador, the indigenous Quechua communities face significant challenges. Despite residing in an area rich in oil resources that power modern society, these indigenous groups grapple with the absence of electricity and fundamental governmental assistance, spanning employment, healthcare, and education.

This transition promises to elevate their quality of life, diminish their reliance on destructive oil corporations, and align Ecuador with cleaner energy solutions, mitigating the environmental and societal repercussions of oil production.
China House, in partnership with the China Solar Power Group, is raising funds to deliver solar-powered lights to indigenous communities, enough to illuminate their households. This initiative offers several significant benefits:


  • Reduced Dependence: Solar energy empowers these communities to lessen their reliance on environmentally harmful oil companies, fostering self-sufficiency and autonomy.


  • Clean Energy Transition: By introducing clean and sustainable energy sources, this project contributes to Ecuador's shift away from fossil fuels, aligning with global efforts to combat climate change.


  • Education: Solar lighting enables local children to study and access improved educational opportunities, promising a brighter future.


  • Economic Empowerment: Access to solar energy facilitates more productive activities, such as weaving handicrafts, which can generate income for indigenous families.
