“Power to Educate” is an initiative supporting education in emerging countries. Its platform is designed for companies in the oil and gas industry to contribute to increase the number of children that receive an education.
According to WHO, household pollution in Africa and Asia is responsible for 4,3 million deaths each year due to use of firewood indoors. The program and platform aim at substituting firewood with LPG, Solar and Wind solutions for domestic power usage. With no need to collect firewood, children can utilize the time to go to school.
The platform tracks the increased energy usage of LPG, Solar and Wind and measures this locally as a reduction in use of firewood. Power to Educate then awards the local communities with funds dedicated to educational programs for each increased use of Solar, Wind and LPG.
