What a trip! We just returned from our due diligence and exploratory trip to East Africa, Rwanda to be exact. We visited an operating run-of-the-river hydro power plant and one that is to be developed. We’ve identified the needs for more electricity access and power capacity, affordable housing, as well as access to the banking system through Inclusive Financial Institutions as areas in which we have the expertise on our side to help. Seeing as Africa is the second largest and second most populous continent, and has the world’s fastest growing population (43% of which is under the age of 15) – we know there is enormous need and opportunity in Africa, and we are aiming to be in the position to help fulfill those needs.
We also held a special presentation and Q&A session LIVE from Africa aimed at giving a sense of the need and scale of opportunity – if you would like watch the replay of that session or watch a short in-person tour of the run-of-the-river projects please reach out to us and we’ll make sure to get you in the loop.
