Our Charitable Objectives

The Foundation is a UK registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.  Our charitable objectives are:

To promote sustainable development for the benefit of the public by:

  • the relief of poverty, advancement of education and the improvement of the conditions of life in socially and economically disadvantaged communities; and
  • the promotion of sustainable means of achieving economic growth and regeneration.

By connecting people who understand clean energy with communities who understand their own opportunities, the Foundation’s primary focus will be to reduce poverty by providing clean energy – switching on the possibility of job creation, light for school homework, power for mobile connectivity, water pumps and the eradication of kerosene.

"If we are to end extreme poverty, we must tackle energy poverty"
