Solvatten has been awarded the prestigious Momentum for Change Lighthouse award spearheaded by the UN Climate Change Secretariat. This award shines a light on game changing activities across the globe that are moving the world toward a sustainable, low-carbon future. Solvatten provides energy efficiency and safe water for the people most vulnerable to climate change.

We would particularly like to share this news with our Kenyan partners, as the climate finance project was implemented in Kibera, Nairobi.

This is a strong recognition of how through partnerships, we can empower people to be climate heroes and make a strong and positive impact on their people’s lives and on the planet we all share.

Find some facts about the project below.
