We've partnered with GivePower, a non-profit organization that provides solar-based solutions to secure food, water and electricity for people in regions that need them most. Through our new program, Brighter World Project, together with our members, we will help advance clean energy solutions in developing countries – including Colombia, Kenya and Nepal – which have been disproportionately affected by climate change.
The way the Brighter World Project works is simple: for every year someone is an Inspire member, we will provide clean energy solutions to one person in critical need for one year. Today, more than 3.5 billion people worldwide lack access to reliable electricity, and nearly 1.5 billion people live in areas with high water scarcity. This partnership is designed to use clean energy to help improve access to basic human needs, such as clean drinking water, for communities that might not otherwise have access. Through this partnership, we plan to donate more than $500,000 to GivePower over the next two years to extend the collective mission of transforming the energy landscape by improving access to clean energy around the globe.
"The time is now to give people the power to take climate action and create a better future for generations to come," said Patrick Maloney, our founder and CEO. "As we continue our mission of making clean energy accessible to households across the U.S., we also know that climate change is not an equal opportunity offender. It's imperative that Inspire expand beyond our borders and provide renewable energy solutions to communities that have contributed almost nothing to global warming but are feeling its effects the most."
"GivePower is thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Inspire to accelerate the global transition to an equitable, carbon-free future," said Hayes Barnard, founder, chairman, and CEO of GivePower. "By using clean energy to help power communities in critical need, we can eliminate the use of polluting fuels and countless tons of carbon emissions while improving lives and livelihoods."
This official partnership marks a continuation and thoughtful evolution of our relationship with GivePower, which began in 2018 with a series of clean energy projects that provided aid to 50 communities across Nepal and Colombia. Over two years, our employees have traveled alongside GivePower partners to install solar-powered energy and water pumping systems in remote villages that previously lacked electricity. These efforts have generated more than 220,000 kW of clean energy and positively impacted over 60,000 lives.
