Dear friends and members of the ep. Network-Community,

We hope that the New Year started for you all with a lot of new ideas, successful projects and encouraging experiences. We are happy that our Solutions Database grew further  throughout the first weeks of the year 2015. This update introduces you to a few amazing projects that show the huge diversity of solutions with a good potential to make a difference for people within important categories of basic services from power supply and food security to healthcare innovations.

We will not cease to share all these small but intelligent approaches with practitioners on the ground, implementation organizations and development partners that can use them for their project work or are interested in partnership, whether with a focus on technology, business or financial support.

We aim to bring these partners together– that’s what the “empowering people. Network” stands for also in 2015. Stay connected and be part of a vibrant community!
