Donation made to COOPI

Date: 10/02/2020

In 2019, NextEnergy Foundation partnered with COOPI to install a solar off-grid system in Gbinty Town, Port-Loko District, Sierra Leone.

The Foundation is excited to announce that it has renewed its partnership with COOPI. We have donated €20,000 COOPI to install a solar pumping system to rehabilitate a non-functioning borehole in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. This will increase access to water sources for local communities (approximately 2,250 beneficiaries), reducing the distance to water sources from between 500m-2km.

The Project will be completed in June 2020 and an update on the Project’s impact will be provided by COOPI shortly afterwards. For more information on the Project, please visit the Project page.
