Lack of access to energy feeds a vicious cycle of poverty. Accelerated deployment of clean distributed energy solutions, on massive scale, to reach the billion+ with no access, is our ambition. Our proposal brings hope to the “broken” lives of the dispossessed and the disenfranchised. At its core, we provide reliable energy services to touch half a million lives at refugee camps in Eastern Africa. ‘Off-grid’ energy solutions will deliver clean, renewable energy for electricity, clean water, sanitation, cooking and support to educational and health facilities. Our comprehensive technical plan combines reliable support of energy with community self-sufficiency and self-determination. Income for livelihood, skills development at all educational levels, learning through play and empowerment of women are all central aspects of our proposal to create a positive pathway out of humanitarian crises. Energy access is the first step: a launch pad for education and a path out of extreme poverty.
