WHERE WE WORK
More than 200 million people in southern Africa lack access to electricity. Roughly 75% of the population is considered rural, making grid expansion costly and difficult.
Namibia is the second most sparsely populated country in the world. It’s low population density combined with high import tariffs makes it an extremely challenging country in which to do business. It is a country often forgotten about by traditional non-profits and social enterprises.
Yet more than 1 million people lack access to electricity in Namibia and 60% of the country’s electricity comes from imported fossil fuels.
