What's the secret to sustainability?

With such a lengthy track record that transcends regions, languages and cultures, we’ve learned a thing or two about sustainable impact. And yet, each Barefoot collaboration is unique. As it turns out, this is the true secret to sustainability and impact.

We start with a critical need informed by the annually updated list of Least Developed Countries. We connect donors directly to outcomes that meet their objectives. Corporations looking to meet CSR mandates or goals will find a seamless transition to impact. By partnering with us, your organization can help shape future growth that aligns with your goals. Projects are then selected by strategic location where the Barefoot Approach can set the best example and show that the impossible is possible.

Collectively and strategically we advance Barefoot Solutions for sustainability in places where they are needed most. Barefoot’s success is tied to the quality of partnerships. We value and nurture each of these vital connections to have a complete structure for sustainable progress in the world.

We are determined to bring together cross-sector partners with a shared goal of making access to sustainable energy a reality for all. Corporations, Multilateral Organizations and Private Foundations come together with social enterprise to reach the most marginalized peoples in the Least Developed Countries.
