Rural electrification community La Florida, San Juan de la Maguana and Sabana Yegua Viejo, Azua
NPF Intervention Proposal
Thanks to the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, 41 families from Arroyo Grande, San Juan de la Maguana and 25 families from Sabana Yegua Viejo, Azua living in conditions of extreme poverty, received energy for the first time through solar panels.
With clean energy, 66 families were able to: improve their health and quality of life; have savings in your economy; learn about new technologies and development opportunities; make better use of natural resources and protect the environment.
Through this project, training on the proper use, maintenance and installation of the solar solution was offered to all the beneficiaries, who participated in workshops and awareness and empowerment processes led by our ally in the South, FUNDASEP, to motivate them to be responsible for their own transformation and development.
"We are pleased to work together with the Nature Power Foundation offering financial support to cover the basic energy needs of Dominicans who are in rural communities with very precarious economic and social conditions." German Ambassador, Dr. Volker Pellet reported. "
"Thanks to the benevolence of the German government we have been able to improve the living conditions of these families and at the same time bring sustainable solutions that allow us to promote environmental care in the Dominican Republic," said Laura Rojas, executive director of Nature Power Foundation.
