Scotland Lights Up Malawi
The Scotland Lights up Malawi campaign is raising funds in order to address climate justice by investing in solar lights in Malawi.
Climate justice is global justice for those people vulnerable to the impacts of climate change who are usually forgotten - the poor, the disempowered and the marginalised across the world. The concept is that those who have benefited from emitting carbon and burning fossil fuels assist those whose lives are affected by the changing climate.
Money raised will help our partner SolarAid change lives across Malawi by providing access to safe, clean lights for the first time, supporting the eradication of the kerosene lamp.
By supporting such work you will help support the charities' efforts in combating climate change and by bringing light to some of the 15 million Malawians still without electricity.
If you would like to stay in touch with the project visit or get in touch with Ruth Milliken on firstname.lastname@example.org.
A video about the work of SolarAid can be seen below.
1.3 billion people in the world have no access to energy. Unconnected to the grid and disconnected from the world, these families struggle to break from the cycle of poverty.
Kerosene is burnt to light their homes and businesses. Dung cakes or firewood are used to bring heat to households and to cook meals each day. And women and girls must spend up to four hours each day collecting water, often in the most physically demanding environments.
Renewable World exists to change this reality by providing clean and sustainable renewable energy to communities in developing countries. This breaks the cycle of poverty and improves livelihoods, health, and education for some of the world’s poorest people.
We work with local partners in East Africa, South Asia, and Central America to tackle the root causes of poverty by providing access to community-owned renewable energy systems like solar, wind, hydro, and biogas. Our model of community engagement, sustainability, and female empowerment fulfil key criteria as set out by the United Nations, and to date, our work has transformed the lives over 30,000 people.
Renewable energy does not harm the environment, it replaces the expensive and polluting kerosene in homes and businesses, it provides safer cooking fuels, and it provides the power needed to pump water.
We are proud of the support that Scottish Renewables and the Scottish renewable energy industry gives us. For more information on how to get involved, follow us on Facebook, Twitter or sign up to our newsletter here. Thank you.
