Project Report | Jan 27, 2022
Our Powering Villages project is coming to a close

By Alessandra Moscadelli | Head of Communications

Dear Supporter,

I’m reaching out to thank you again for your generous support of our Powering Villages project and let you know that this campaign is now coming to a close.

The scope of this project was undoubtedly ambitious: to supply twenty villages across Kenya and Tanzania with a full spectrum of solar lighting and clean cooking solutions; reliable electricity and cold storage to schools and health clinics; and solar-powered water pumps for safe drinking water and crop irrigation. Taking the 360-degree approach we consider so important, the provision of clean energy was to be coupled with skills-building to support local entrepreneurs – men and women – to run profitable energy-enabled businesses that could grow and create jobs.

However, we were not able to raise sufficient funds to extend the project to the full twenty villages as originally planned. We fell short of our fundraising target as the tough challenges of the last two years meant we could not secure the necessary co-funding from larger donors and foundations.

We are really proud though of the tremendous impact we have achieved so far with your kind donations. As you saw from our reports your generous support has contributed to:

  • supporting rural entrepreneurs (especially women) to expand their businesses, acquire new electric equipment and offer new products and services to their communities;
  • installing photovoltaic solar panels to schools and clinics in poor and hard-to-reach areas;
  • making solar electricity and clean cooking appliances affordable to the poorest households through subsidies.

I would like to reassure you that any remaining funds raised through GlobalGiving will now be channelled towards larger, better-funded programmes that share the same valuable goals and have the potential to reach many more vulnerable communities, beyond 20 villages and across a wider range of geographical regions in Africa.

Not only contributing to the fight against climate change, your support is transforming lives for the better across sub-Saharan Africa. To find out more about how we are providing solutions to people’s most pressing challenges please read our Annual Review.
