Many thanks to our CAFOD Young Leaders at Blessed Hugh Faringdon Secondary school Reading for leading PSHE sessions on the Power to Be Campaign. Every child has the power in them to achieve great things. But with one in six people still living without electricity, the hopes of millions of the world’s children are too often a distant dream.
Local, renewable energy is usually the cheapest, fastest and most efficient solution to bring power to the poorest communities. It can help families to lift themselves out of poverty, without harming the world we share. The Power to Be Campaign is calling on the World Bank to ensure access to renewable energy for the world’s poorest people.
