GivePower partnered with Rippleworks to design a process to evaluate new market expansion
GivePower’s solar water farms create sustainable access to clean water in water-scarce regions around the world. To date, GivePower has powered 2,497 schools, installed 34 microgrids, and deployed six water solar farms to benefit more than 630,000 people in 24 countries. After launching successful solar water projects in Kenya, Colombia and Haiti, the organization has been preparing to rapidly scale their solar water farm solution internationally.
GivePower’s top priority going into the project was defining a process to evaluate new market expansion based on their existing and future partnerships with key stakeholders in the WASH sector.
Before, I would go into meeting with USAID, and hear good feedback. They would ask how they could help, and I tried to put together a bunch of documents that were too convoluted.
Now, we have better tools to clarify how partners can help, what we need from them.
