TU eMpower Africa e.V. receives an initial donation of 6.500€ from Solarenergieförderverein Bayern e.V. to support its sustainable agribusiness in Zimbabwe

17th of June, 2020.

This June, TU eMpower Africa e.V. has launched a crowdfunding campaign to support its pilot project in St. Rupert Mayer, a rural community in Zimbabwe. In addition to the negative impacts of the global pandemic on the poor countries of the global South in particular, the Zimbabwean nine-month dry season has just begun and serious food shortages are one of the great risks for the area. Following the organization’s goal to foster sustainable development for African communities through research-based solutions, the team of TU eMpower Africa e.V. has designed a crowdfunding campaign in order to get enough support to sustain local development at St. Rupert Mayer in midst of a global crisis and worsening environmental conditions. During the two first weeks of the campaign, the organization has received an initial amount of 6.500 € from Solarenergieförderverein Bayern e.V.
