About:Stiftung Solarenergie Philippines (SSP) aims to empower rural and marginalized villages throughout the Philippines by providing access to sustainable solar energy solutions. SSP achieves this mission in the following ways:
• Partnering for Change:SSP takes time to understand the context and challenges of partner communities and work together with them and other local stakeholders to co-design and implement a range of suitable interventions that yield significant, long-lasting impact.
• Appropriate and Renewable Technology: SSP introduces appropriate, highly-efficient, solar powered solutions that address the specific needs identified by their partner communities at low ongoing cost.
• Sustainability: SSP works with and trains partner communities to put in place the foundations for long-term program sustainability: a culture of commitment and accountability, local technical capability, a sustainable financial model, the right organization and governance, and connectivity to markets and their solar value chain.
• Replicable and Scalable: SSP designs and documents their programs to be high-impact, cost-effective, and easily replicable in a rural setting. SSP sustains a trajectory of growth by nurturing solar value chains in priority regions with like-minded organizations.

Intern Responsibilities: IIP interns directly support our mission of empowering rural communities through the deployment of solar solutions.  Projects for summer 2018 include:
  • Assisting Program Support Officer with marketing materials and social media presence. Will most likely help produce videos of the various project areas, help create a fresh social media plan, and write press releases and articles relevant for promoting the foundation.
  • Assisting Technical team in tracking inventory and checking status of PV systems in the foundation’s inventory. Will most likely work with the technical team to produce a more efficient inventory monitoring and tracking system as well as troubleshoot small PV systems for repair and warranty claims.
Qualifications: IIP candidates interested in multimedia arts, technical writing, non-profit marketing, engineering and/or renewable energy systems are encouraged to apply. Adobe Creative Suite skills and social media management experience would be an asset. Knowledge in repairing PV (photovoltaic) systems and experience managing inventory would also be an asset.
