Less than three percent of Uganda's rural population has access to electricity. Every day, more than 97 percent uses wood or charcoal for their cooking. That adds up to an environmental and economic calamity for vulnerable war-torn villages in northern Uganda.

You can change that by helping Mercy Corps bring clean and plentiful solar energy to Ugandan villages. One hundred percent of your donation will go toward training once-displaced Ugandan villagers how to install and manage systems that supply renewable, sustainable energy.

This energy will help power households and small businesses, bringing light and life to an area shattered by a generation of war. Please help me help them.
