Run For Renewable World

Globally, almost 1 in 5 people do not have access to electricity; over 1 in 4 lack basic water services like taps and safe drinking water; and over 1 in 3 are without clean cooking facilities. Without access to energy, people remain trapped in a vicious circle of poverty.

Renewable World helps those in need by working with local partners to provide access to clean and sustainable energy. Communities are very much at the heart of the process of installing, managing and maintaining new renewable energy systems, so that they benefit fully. These energy systems can light homes and power businesses; pump water for drinking, sanitation and irrigation; and provide a clean fuel for cooking.

Access to renewable energy not only helps to drive improvements in the health, education and income of local people; it also reduces environmental damage. Since we began work in 2008, our programmes have transformed the lives of almost 40,000 people in Central America, East Africa, and South Asia.

Your fundraising will help us bring life-changing renewable energy to even more communities in need.
