Our mission is to transfer technical knowledge and management skills on infrastructure planning, design, engineering, construction, testing and maintenance to local sub-contractors to help improve the quality of the local workforce.
Provide electricity and gas to underdeveloped areas. The safety of our employees and sub-contractors, the sustainability of the environment as well as the quality of our work are our top priorities
It’s hard not to think about energy today. In the western world, we face growing concerns about our stewardship of the world’s most precious resources. There’s talk of power outages, sources of electrical energy getting limited in supply, and of course, plenty of people who simply don’t care.
But forget about us.
Most of us have never really needed electricity. We’ve never had to leave our houses and walk five miles to get wood for cooking or heating. We simply flip a switch, and there’s light. Yet there are 663 million people who don’t have access to electricity.
That’s a huge number. In fact, it’s twice the number of people who live in the United States. 1 in 10 people in our world doesn’t have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we can’t imagine going 12 hours without.
Here, we’d like to introduce you to a few of those 663 million. They are very real, and they need our help. They didn’t choose to be born into a village where the only source of electricity is far beyond their reach. And we didn’t choose to be born in a country where even the homeless have access to electricity and gas.
We invite you to put yourself in their shoes. Follow them on their daily journey. Carry large bundles of wood or rely on other biomass such as dung, coal or charcoal to be used for heating and cooking, which further results in some of their deaths. Deaths caused by pollution. Study with their children in the dark with a lamp as their only source of light.
Now, make a decision to help. We’re not offering grand solutions and billion dollar schemes, but instead, simple things that work. Things like solar panels and the use of renewable energy sources. For about $30 a person, we know how to help millions.
