Renewable World, a registered international non-profit organisation, works in East Africa, South Asia and Central America to tackle poverty through the provision of affordable renewable energy in remote, off-grid settings. The organisation focuses on working with the 'poorest of the poor', i.e. with communities who presently cannot afford or are not serviced by private energy providers, and for whom a lack of energy is a serious impediment to economic and social development. Renewable World's unique relationship with the Renewable Energy industry allows it to leverage funds, skills, expertise and resources to support and develop its work.
Over 1.3 billion people cannot access electricity. Indoor pollution from paraffin, wood, grass or animal dung used for lighting and heating kills nearly two million people every year, mainly women and children.
Renewable World's work transforms lives.
