Some projects we support

BuildOn Solar Learning Centres

The ClimatePositive-buildOn partnership is a passion project for both organizations, cooperating to create truly impactful change.

It brings solar-powered technology to light up children’s schools, making them available for evening adult literacy programs. These programs not only promote literacy but also empower business and work through a variety of other activities, including reforestation, irrigation, crop and livestock management and beekeeping. All of which provides food for school children, meaning more of them stay in class and remain healthy. 

Project Benefits
  • Replace CO2 and particulate matter with clean solar energy

  • Provide new sources of energy to the local community

  • Restore biodiversity to local lands

  • Provide education and economic empowerment

  • Increase food security throughout sponsorship regions

Blue Mangrove

The Yucatan Mangrove Conservation and Reforestation Project is the first of its kind, involving both the protection of land and the restoration of vegetation. 

Local community members are restoring a quarter of the entire area’s mangroves to foster biodiversity and remove carbon from the atmosphere. The objective of the project is to avoid and remove 11.5 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent over the course of 30 years, by capturing it in the replanted mangroves and through avoidance of emissions by preserving the land.

Project benefits
  • Remove CO2 from the atmosphere by capturing it

  • Provide short-term and long-term work for the local community

  • Restore biodiversity in local waters

  • Offer shelter to aquatic life

  • Create economic growth in a poor community

  • Encourage biodiversity on local lands

  • Avoid and capture over 11.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide over 30 years

NOUAKCHOTT WIND PROJECT

The project is the first wind farm in Mauritania, with 15 turbines installed on 10 km2 of unoccupied land. The energy they generate supplies the equivalent of 140,000 people with green electricity and 14% of the electricity needed by Nouakchott, Mauritania’s capital city. All of which allows the country to reduce fossil fuel usage and to negate 75,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. Mauritania had a goal of using 20% renewables in their energy mix by 2020 and the Nouakchott farm helped the country reach this goal.

Project Benefits
  • Remove CO2 from the atmosphere

  • Provide electricity for 14% of Mauritania’s capital city

  • Create local jobs and economic growth in a least developed country

  • Encourage green energy on local lands

  • Help reach 20% renewables in Mauritania’s energy mix

  • Save over 2.2 million tonnes of CO2 over 30 years

BUGOYE HYDRO PROJECT

The project is a small run-of-river hydro installation located in the rural Bugoye region that has increased access to electricity for an extra 7% of Uganda’s entire population. It supplies 900,000 people with renewable electricity as well as connecting to the country’s remote rural communities. In addition to reducing fossil fuel usage, the scheme negates 50,000 tonnes of C02 each year. 

Project Benefits
  • Remove CO2 from the atmosphere

  • Increase the availability of electricity in Uganda’s rural regions

  • Create local jobs and economic growth in one of the world’s least developed countries

  • Encourage green energy on local land

  • Expand electricity access to 37% of Uganda’s population. (Previously 30%)

  • Save over 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 over 30 years
