The sustainable solutions pioneered by Renewable World offer a long term route out of poverty to thousands of people. The charity works to relieve poverty in remote areas of South Asia, East Africa and Central America by providing energy poor communities with access to clean energy sources. Globally over 1.3 billion people live without access to electricity and the basic facilities it enables. While 2.6 billion have no access to clean cooking facilities and use dangerous, polluting fuels, responsible for 2 million deaths each year. Renewable energy has been proven as a cheap, safe, effective way of tackling energy poverty and improving health, sanitation, mortality rates, economy and livelihood in some of the poorest communities on earth.
Renewable World uses energy generated through renewable systems such as solar MUS, hydram, wind-solar hybrid and biogas to produce livelihood impacts and alleviate poverty. It works with partner organisations and businesses to provide equipment and essential training to communities with a particular emphasis on youth and female participation. Detailed community led consultation and community ownership ensures the sustainability of the systems installed.
Recently Renewable World along with TV presenter Gethin Jones visited Kenya to see how some of their Comic Relief funded projects are going - visit their blog to see how they got on.
