Mission Statement

The GCP Foundation's mission is to alleviate energy poverty in Africa by using renewable energy.

Description

We align our work with the Sustainable Development Goals - namely:

1 - Alleviate Poverty

3 - Good health and well-being

4 - Improve quality education

5 - Promote Gender Equality

7 - Affordable and clean energy

13 - Protect the environment

Our target countries are Nigeria, Kenya, Mozambique and Ghana.

We have completed our pilot project replacing kerosene lamps with hand-held solar lightbulbs to 500 women in Northern Ghana [see our pilot project website for more information http://gcpsolar.ghanacp.com/]

To provide a light for a lady to work or a child to study costs £26.

The impact assessment of our work provided the following information:

Lamps distributed: 500

Lives empowered: 2,500

School children reached: 1,500

Money saved per ann: US$62,500

Kerosene avoided per ann: 30,000 litres

With your support we can help more children read, protect the environment and empower more families.
