2024 Ashden Awards Applications for Powering Refugees and Displaced People is closing soon!

Building the workforce to energise the Global South

Award prize: £25,000

Supported by: Part funded by The Linbury Trust & JAC Trust.

94% of people living in refugee camps go without electricity, and millions are put at risk from dangerous cooking fumes. Without access to clean energy, refugees and displaced people can struggle to earn a living, study and stay healthy.

The Global Refugee Network is pleased to support the Ashden Award for Powering Refugees and Displaced People which will boost the pioneers tackling this problem – those who are creating change in their own communities with inspiring, practical solutions.

It will support work powering up homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, and other community spaces. It will honour initiatives that are driven by refugee communities, or carried out in genuine partnership with them.

Entry is free, and closes on 25 January 2024. Winners receive a grant of up to £25,000, publicity, and connection to new funders, investors and partners.
