    Power for the People (PFP) is a small, UK-registered charity that aims to help build sustainable communities for some of the world’s poorest people. Our emphasis is on sustainability; i.e. putting money into projects that create livelihoods, capabilities and revenues that the community that can use to achieve self-sufficiency. In practice this has meant investing in solar power (small units), clean water, healthcare and farming.

    Our operating principles are based on:

    • Environmental, Operational & Financial Sustainability: Our projects use environmentally-sound technologies. We create employment from the outset by using local labour, and build the community’s capability to operate and maintain the facilities after PFP exits. Projects create long-term revenue streams (e.g. from selling of electricity, carbon credits, water or farm produce) to pay for ongoing operation, maintenance, and potential expansion of the facilities

    • Pilot, Scale-up, Replicate: Piloting tests the robustness of the solutions before scale-up and replication, as well as pacing the change and making fundraising more manageable

    • Handshakes not handouts:  Enabling people to pay a fair, achievable price for what they need is essential for their empowerment and for the sustainability of the change. The revenue from projects is invested back into the operation, maintenance and expansion of the community facilities

    • Innovation, Partnership, Inclusion:  Partnership with the beneficiary community is essential for successful delivery: the community contributes ideas, labour, local knowledge and networks, and is responsible for ongoing operation and maintenance. PFP also actively seeks to work with other public/private/third sector organisations to leverage expertise, experience and networks, and avoid duplication and minimise waste

    Our latest project, with Patongo Orphans and Infants Health and Rehabilitation Centre (PAORINHER) in Northern Uganda, supports people who suffered the terror and atrocities of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) for over twenty years. Our aim is to distribute solar lighting and power banks to the communities and buy 240 acres of land on which to build a sustainable farm, seedbank and farming expertise / support centre.
