The power of electricity ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿฅ

Now with 24-hour access to electricity, the Nyumanzi Health Center is seeing improved services across the board for their 40,000 annual patients, from routine and specialized immunizations, to thermal protection for preterm babies, to communication and outpatient recording.

There are still many rural hospitals that need electricity in Uganda. Today is Giving Tuesday; consider giving the gift of electricity to the millions of families who urgently seek medical care.

This year, we have many things to be grateful for. From clean water flowing through taps in San Antonio, Nicaragua to 24 hour electricity at the Nyumanzi Health Center in Uganda to a coalition planning for renewable energy across the state of Sabah, Malaysia.

Time and again, we are inspired and humbled by the amazing things that are possible when a global community comes together to make lasting change.

Wishing you and your family a joyous Thanksgiving from the Green Empowerment Family ๐Ÿ’š

Decolonizing development:

At Green Empowerment we believe that indigenous people know what communities need. they lead their own development and should be key decision makers in the fight against climate.

How did the Nyumanzi Health Center go from receiving 2 hours of electricity daily to 24? ๐Ÿ’ก

Using Green Empowerment's DREAM Tool first to collect data and prioritize this clinic, we installed a 7.7Kwh solar system with 19Kwh battery storage and a remote monitoring system together with @medicalteams and Mandulis Energy.

Stay tuned to learn how the power of electricity has dramatically impacted a health center that sees over 40,000 patients per year.

Would you give birth via cellphone flashlight? Or undergo surgery? For many people in rural Uganda, there is no other choice.

Until this summer, the Nyumanzi Health Clinic operated on just two hours of electricity per day. However, one of Green Empowermentโ€™s innovative tools helped @medicalteams confront this challenge and prioritize Nyumanzi Health Clinic for our first solar installation in Uganda.

Stay tuned to learn more next week!

Rainwater catchment tanks help small-holder farmers in Colombia get ahead of further climate change consequences. As the dry season intensifies, these tanks allow farmers to store water and use it year-round to water their crops.

We are so impressed by the women's savings collectives in Colombia who prioritized this project for their region and our partner El Comun who helped bring it to fruition.
