We need to raise $15,000 through this campaign to strengthen healthy families and resilient communities on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua and throughout Ethiopia.
blueEnergy strengthens healthy families and resilient communities by focusing on empowering the most isolated poor. We do this by working at the nexus of renewable energy; water, sanitation, and hygiene; and food security.
In 2019, blueEnergy is celebrating our 15 year anniversary of impact on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua and five years of impact in Ethiopia. Join us as we mark this important landmark in our history by helping us achieve our end of year fundraising goal of $15,000! Together, we will ensure another 15 years (and beyond) of impact.
With more than 60,000 lives directly impacted and dozens of communities empowered through sustainable development, we look forward to expanding our impact in new regions of Nicaragua and Africa as we continue our commitment to the communities on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua.
For 15 years, we have worked in an integrated, holistic manner. We continue to drive change from the bottom up in marginalized, isolated communities in Nicaragua and Ethiopia.
As agents of change, your support makes it possible for us to continue our work.
When you support our work, you are supporting driven and committed local leaders, many of whom are women. For the first time in our history, all of blueEnergy Nicaragua’s senior leadership positions are filled by local women.
Your gift goes directly towards impact in the field. Here are some examples of the types of impact you can make today:
$25 can help to plant a family garden, ensuring access to nutrition and food security.
$75 can turn the (solar) lights on in a family's home for the first time.
$150 can install a fuel-efficient cookstove in a family's home, immediately eliminating the equivalent of nearly two packs of cigarettes a day the women and children inhale with traditional cooking methods. It also radically reduces deforestation. Two impacts for the price of one!
$250 can secure fresh water for an entire family. With changing rainfall, prolonged dry seasons, and the certainty of drought, water systems are more important than ever.
$1,500 can equip and train a family of changemakers in resilience, climate change adaptation, and food security. These families act as leaders and role models in their communities, creating a ripple of impact.
$5,000 can make you a member of our Leadership Circle, showing your dedication to healthy families and resilient communities, and you'll even receive a special token of appreciation from Bluefields. Plus the added bonus of us calling you a rock star.
