Fundraising complete, Liam has reached 100% of the target!
Liam Duggan - Earth, Wind and Tyre 2019
- My Story
On the 8th and 9th June I will be cycling 216 miles (348km) from Durham to Edinburgh to raise money for Renewable World.
Globally, almost 1 in 5 people do not have access to electricity, over 1 in 4 lack basic water services like taps and safe drinking water, and over 1 in 3 are without clean cooking facilities. Without access to energy, these people remain trapped in poverty.
Renewable World helps those in need by working with local partners to provide access to clean and sustainable energy, and involves communities directly in the process by providing training, so that they can benefit fully from new renewable energy systems.
These energy systems can light homes and power businesses, pump water for drinking, sanitation and irrigation, and provide a clean fuel for cooking. Access to renewable energy not only helps to drive improvements in the health, education and income of local people; it also reduces environmental damage.
Almost there, Liam has reached 75% of the target!
