Jerusalem-based Energiya Global is using the Israeli crowdfunding platform Crowdmii to raise $60, 000 toward building a solar-powered generator for His House of Hope, a Christian ministry-run orphanage, school and hospital catering to women and children in Yei, South Sudan.

The Israeli solar and social development enterprise aims to provide clean electricity for 50 million people in underserved areas of the world. South Sudan, a country founded after a long civil war in Sudan, has many orphans and homeless children. The funding campaign is a partnership with the New York-based Renewable Light Fund.

“By providing a solar installation to His House of Hope Hospital we are increasing the facility’s ability to care for the ill, assist birthing mothers and prevent the spread of disease in the region while reducing the cost of electricity and augmenting its availability, ” the company explains in its campaign. “We are currently planning the construction, financing and interconnection of a utility-scale solar field that will be connected to the national grid.”

If the campaign is successful, installation of the solar panels at His House of Hope Hospital will begin three months later, and is expected to take three additional months to complete.

Previously, Energiya Global’s sister company, Gigawatt Global, constructed a $23.7 million utility-scale, grid-connected, commercial solar field at the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda. The 8.5-megawatt field has increased Rwanda’s generation capacity by 6 percent.
