May 2017 Liberia Project

10,000 Clean Cookstoves and Solar Lights Distribution Project, Liberia 2017

Hello Friends of ESI,

This year beginning in May 2017, ESI and local implementing partner SJedi Green Energy, will partner with the many campaigns in Liberia to deliver 10,000 Clean Cookstoves and Solar Lights products to many communities throughout Liberia.

2017 is a special year in Liberia. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa’s first female president, is stepping down after 12 years in office. The new presidential elections will occur in November and all the presidential and political campaigns are heading to their communities throughout the country to explain their platforms for Liberia’s future.
