1.4 billion people live in energy poverty. Each night many of the world’s poorest and most marginalised are plunged into complete darkness when the sun sets or are reliant on toxic energy sources like kerosene and diesel for their cooking and lighting needs.
This situation is especially tough on children and has a profound impact on their ability to learn, health and wellbeing, and economic stability.
We’ve aligned our programs with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015. Our agenda intersects with many of the goals, with a particular focus on health, education, energy, climate action and partnerships.
