Accessing energy plays a crucial role to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of human development. We realize the importance of providing this basic need as well as access to training and education. The WakaWaka Foundation not only provides the technological device to escape energy poverty, we also teach women life skills and competences, enable children to study longer, combat chronic pulmonary disease and other ailments and provide education about sustainable living. We do this by partnering with local NGOs. For more in-depth information, please read about our four programs.
In our WakaWaka Empower Initiative, the WakaWaka Foundation works together with local Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) in developing countries to provide microcredit loans which include a WakaWaka. With this micro-entrepeneurs project we kickstart economic development, promote entrepreneurialism and alleviate energy poverty for those who need it the most.
