We bring life-changing products to people who need them most
Who we are
Pollinate Energy is a social business based in Australia and India. We bring life-changing products to people who need them most: the millions living in poverty in India’s urban slums. We enable some of the world’s poorest people to switch to solar energy. We deliver financial savings as well as improvements to the quality of life for our customers; including increasing the time children spend studying, improving the safety and ease of women cooking, and reducing the frequency of rats and snakes in customers’ tents.
What we stand for
Can you imagine a life without energy? For many people all over the world, it’s their reality. Here at Pollinate Energy, we have aim to improve the lives of India’s urban poor by giving them access to sustainable products that make their lives better. We’re passionate about empowering local Indian entrepreneurs to be a positive force for change in India’s urban poor communities. It’s our mission to make social business mainstream by raising awareness about the communities we work with, and supporting the next generation of social entrepreneurs.
Why is this important?
There are currently 65 million people living in urban slums in India, and this number is rapidly growing. Conditions in these slums are often unfit for people to live in. Universally accepted, basic needs, are simply missing. Pollinate Energy is committed to changing this. Our focus is on tackling the issue of energy poverty, and to date in India we have reached 83,480 people living in 797 communities in Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad & Lucknow.
We’re excited to partner with Leaders of Change because…
The problem of energy poverty is complex and it can mean life or death for those experiencing it. We are committed to tackling energy poverty one community at a time, and look forward to working with your school to find ways that we can help spread our vision.
