The Green People’s Energy for Africa's Small Projects Fund offers financial support to initiatives led by nonprofit organizations in the field of decentralized renewable energy. The Fund can enable small projects and contribute to realizing project ideas located in sub-Saharan Africa that contribute to sustainable development. The Fund is looking for concrete solutions based on an identified local need. The expected impact and likely success of the proposed solutions to overcome social, ecological, and/or economic challenges in the energy sector will be analyzed by an assessment committee. A specific focus is sustainable, meaning benefits pursued in the framework of the project’s timeframe shall continue beyond implementation. Additional thematic priorities are on training, productive uses of energy, electrification of social infrastructure, and partnerships.
