Solar Village Project
Founded in 2014, Solar Village Project is dedicated to reversing the negative impacts of climate change and making solar power the primary energy choice for rural communities in the developing world. Their mission is to provide clean, renewable and reliable energy for all people, beginning with those who can least afford it. 800 million people are living without access to electricity and another 1.2 billion are living without reliable access to electricity.
As COVID-19 has spread throughout India, SVP is working with local partners to bring reliable solar power to rural health clinics in the country. Ventilators, generators, refrigerators and other essential medical equipment rely on power. As SVP says- solar power can save lives.
Clinic by the Bay
San Francisco, CA
Clinic by the Bay is a non-profit, free clinic located in the Excelsior District of San Francisco. The people they serve every day are the working uninsured in the community – the workers on the front lines and the essential workers who make the economy work. These patients either do not qualify for Medi-Cal due to their immigration status or simply cannot afford the high-cost of insurance premiums for themselves and their families. These patients truly are the individuals that fall through the cracks of the healthcare safety net. This grant will support core services of Primary and Preventive Health Care Services, including mental health services, counseling, prescription assistance, specialty referrals, health coaching, psychosocial assessments and referrals, physical therapy, dermatology, and more.
