Waris Dirie – Sustainable Energy for Africa

20 Jun

Yesterday I have met Dr. Kandeh K. Yumkella, the Director General of UNIDO and as well of the UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative.

Dr. Kandeh K. Yumkella ist he founder and the head of the initiative  http://www.sustainableenergyforall.org/

“We both come from Africa and both of us have experienced energy poverty and the lack of economic opportunities to escape poverty. Especially women and children are affected by this situation. It is our duty to support our fellow Africans.”

I will keep you informed about the progress of this new important cooperation , that will also include new opportunities to eradicate FGM.
