  1. Hi There

    A stunning set of recipients – you are a very generous bunch. Could I throw our hat in to the ring for consideration next year?

    We tackle poverty through the power of renewable energy and we have projects in Kenya, Nepal and Bangladesh. It costs just £9 per person per year to bring electricity and access to water through solar water pumping to people who desperately need our help. See more at http://www.renewable-world.org or @renewableworld.

    Thanks and best wishes

    Marie
