Inside Communities

Access to energy

For many in the world, better access to energy could mean the difference between poverty and prosperity: it affects their health, education and their ability to earn a living.

Community health

We run projects, often in partnership with local NGOs or development bodies, that provide people in communities with access to adequate healthcare.

 

Education

Education can open the door to opportunities and help people build a better future.
