Emmanuel Jal was announced as ambassador for the ‘Power for the People’ Project with EPGE Energy at the 6th Annual World Infrastructure Summit in Barcelona, Spain.

PFP is a UK based NGO working with communities in Africa. Our projects tell us they do not want charity, they want the resources to kick start their own development. We work with them to make that happen.

As ‘Power for the People’ launched their new donor projects in front of delegates from the World Infrastructure Summit in Barcelona, Emmanuel reminded attendees at the EPGE reception how important investing in businesses with a purpose was, particularly in poor communities across Africa. Emmanuel has experienced first hand the hardships endured by people living in countries like South Sudan and Kenya, but also the amazing results when opportunities are given to those without access to basic needs of education and health – which can be powered by renewable energy.

Emmanuel believes in long term sustainable solutions for Africans, to alleviate poverty, bring about peace, and support the ever growing economic landscape of the continent. ‘Working with an organisation such as PFP makes sense as we look to the future, Africa desperately needs clean, renewable energy at an affordable price and this is a solution which all governments needs to working towards. Africa has one of the fastest growing demographics in the world and so we also need to ensure the poorest communities in these countries are served as development rapidly expands. Projects like PFP are essential in closing the gap between the rich and poor in these countries and supporting those who need access to essential education, health and housing. I’m proud to be an ambassador for PFP and supporting peace through the ‘Power for People.’ “

Electricity saves lives and transforms communities. This is PFP’s simple proposition. Giving communities the ability to generate their own electricity is one of the most effective ways of triggering sustainable development. Form the power flows better health, better education and sustainable growth.
