About this grant

Christian Aid is a nonprofit organization with more than 70 years’ experience working to support communities and enable them to thrive. Based in the United Kingdom, Christian Aid works globally to eradicate the causes of poverty. Under this grant, they will support, build, and strengthen the capacity of the African Coalition for Sustainable Energy and Access network to work with multilateral development banks to shift investments away from fossil fuels and into renewable energy, while at the same time demanding from policymakers the delivery of renewable, sustainable, affordable, and reliable energy to the millions of Africans who are not connected to the grid.
