Powering brighter futures

Practical Action is working alongside communities like Jennifer’s around the world to enable brighter futures by unleashing the transformative power of clean energy.

In Peru, 1 million people do not have access to electricity. 

It’s not just their homes that lack power – 30% of schools and 20% of clinics are forced to operate without electricity. The sustainable electricity schemes we’ve helped to develop use the power of the sun and flowing water to generate clean, renewable energy.

With electricity in their homes, schools and clinics, families are healthier and happier. Instead of spending hours collecting firewood for fuel, children are able to attend school and study at home in the evenings.  They now have more opportunities to escape the cycle of poverty forever.
