Energy 4 Impact has launched its first crowdfunding campaign on GlobalGiving to raise $5,000 in 3 weeks starting from 10th June 2019. The campaign is built around the Powering Villages project idea, which aims to provide access to clean energy in 20 of the poorest villages in the least developed areas in Kenya and Tanzania over the next 3 years.
This means light, power and clean cooking to households; reliable electricity and cold storage to schools and health clinics; solar-powered water pumps for safe drinking water and crop irrigation. Whereas a typical Energy 4 Impact project has been to do the same things across many locations, in this project we are aiming to do lots of things in one place.
The benefits would be tangible and translate into better quality of life for 60,000 people, more business for enterprises, better incomes for farmers, and better service provision by institutions like schools and health clinics. Obviously more than this $5K will be needed to make that happen, this is just a starting point.
Crowdfunding is all about raising small amounts of money from many people. Therefore, Energy 4 Impact would be very grateful if you could help raise funds throughout the duration of the campaign: from Monday, June 10, 2019 (9:00 a.m. ET) to Friday, June 28, 2019 (11:59 p.m. ET).
