After learning about our work in Nicaragua, indigenous leaders in Mindanao, the Philippines and Sabah, Malaysia invited us to share our experiences, initiating long-time partnerships in those countries which positioned us to expand our work into Myanmar and Indonesia.
Our focus in the region is on rural electrification projects. We work with partners both to build community-scale micro-utilities and to affect governmental energy planning. This advocacy helps to ensure that remote communities have access to clean energy aligned with their values, land protections and aspirations. In addition, our holistic approach in the region includes innovating new micro-grid technology and integrating watershed conservation into projects.
