Back in September 2020 PESITHO applied for the Journey 2 Scale grant, issued by the Humanitarian Innovation Fund and Elrha, aimed for humanitarian innovators who have proof of a successful pilot project of their business in at least one humanitarian setting.
In the case of PESITHO along with our partner Mercy Corps, we will use the financial support in order to expand the current production and retail network of our ECOOP facilities (ECOCA local production and assembly in Bidibidi refugee settlement, Uganda)
The aim is to expand our current operations and networks in Uganda along 5 major goals:
We feel honored and proud to see that our efforts are recognized and supported in this way. We are thankful to have the opportunity to expand our current projects and collaborations with existing partners in order to work towards supplying even more people with clean cooking facilities, while at the same time creating jobs and fighting climate change.
We will be posting updates along the course of the project and are excited to share the steps of our Journey 2 Scale!
