Ultra-Poor Gifting

The Foundation realizes that those who need alternative energy solutions the most, i.e. the poorest of the poor, cannot afford the solutions that are designed for the BoP. Social businesses which offer these products cannot afford to subsidize these products which already are sold at such low margins. Using funding from philanthropic donors, the Foundation purchases clean energy products from our ground partner Frontier Markets and ensures that they are delivered to households that need these products the most. As a follow up, the Foundation measures the impact of these products on these households’ health and livelihoods.

The map of financial flows below demonstrates how the Foundation uses funding from donors to deliver much-needed clean energy solutions to such households.
