The project “Daw”, which means “light” in English, aims to increase job opportunities for young people in the Mafraq region by selecting 20 trainees between the ages of 18 and 24, 20 percent of them women, and equipping them with the technical, practical, and scientific knowledge needed to install and maintain photovoltaic cells.

According to a statement released by EDAMA on Thursday, Yellow Door Energy, which has approximately 80 megawatts of functioning solar projects across the Kingdom, is majority-owned by Actis, which runs the foundation Actis Acts providing funding for philanthropic initiatives that have a beneficial and long-lasting influence on communities.

Following the project's intense three-month training period, trainees will receive certifications attesting to their completion of the practical requirements necessary to work on the installation and maintenance of photovoltaic cells.

Through the training, a community center will be furnished with 20 kilowatts worth of photovoltaic cells installed by the trainees. Yellow Door Energy maintain the cells and provide technical assistance.
