In Q1 2022, blueEnergy received a one-time grant for $10,000 to support its overall vision and mission. In Nicaragua, blueEnergy is launching a multi-year initiative to deliver improved access to safe drinking water and increased nutritional and food security for women heads-of-households, as well as the disabled and the elderly. They are also expanding their “Climate Smart Schools” initiative, partnering with grade schools in the region to strengthen their climate change resilience through water and hygiene infrastructure, soil, and food-producing garden bed improvements. To further blueEnergy’s long-term sustainability in Nicaragua they are working to secure their campus, which houses their model center, offices, and production shop in the city of Bluefields. In Ethiopia, they are focusing on providing solar-powered water pumping systems and efficient cookstoves for better water access, health, and nutrition.
