Give the Gift of Light, Water, and Food

blueEnergy believes that change happens at the community level. Our locally-driven approach engages rural, off-grid communities, where we work at the nexus of renewable energy; water, sanitation, and hygiene; and food security.


We are asking for your help to raise $10,000 through this to strengthen healthy families and resilient communities on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua and throughout Ethiopia as we make our way into 2023.


Your support makes it possible for us to continue our work.


With more than 175,000 lives directly impacted and dozens of communities empowered, we continue to drive change from the bottom up in communities made marginalized and isolated in Nicaragua and Ethiopia. For 18 years, we have worked in this integrated, holistic manner.


Your gift goes directly towards impact in the field. Here are some examples of the types of impact you can make today:


$25 can help to plant a family garden, ensuring access to nutrition and food security.


$75 can turn the (solar) lights on in a family's home for the first time.


$150 can install a fuel-efficient cookstove in a family's home, immediately eliminating the equivalent of nearly two packs of cigarettes a day the women and children inhale with traditional cooking methods. It also radically reduces deforestation.


$250 can secure fresh water for an entire family. With changing rainfall, prolonged dry seasons, and the certainty of drought, water systems are more important than ever.


$1,500 can equip and train a family in climate change adaptation and food security. These families act as leaders and role models in their communities, creating a ripple of impact.


$5,000 can make you a member of our Leadership Circle, showing your dedication to healthy families and resilient communities, and you'll receive a special token of gratitude from Bluefields.


Founded in 2004, blueEnergy works with isolated communities in Nicaragua and Ethiopia to develop solutions that can be applied worldwide. We have been extensively recognized for our innovative work by CNN Heroes, Larry King Live, the Tech Awards, the Energy Globe Awards, and the Ashoka Fellowship. blueEnergy believes that impact is a two-way street: your dollars and our transparency.
