Power to be campaign: World Bank petition

Power to be - CAFOD's new campaign

Every child has the power in them to achieve great things.

But with one in six people still living without electricity, the hopes of millions of the world’s children are all too often a distant dream.

Renewable energy can transform lives for children – so they don’t have to depend on unreliable, dangerous and unhealthy energy sources.

The UK already spends money on energy access for the poorest communities through the World Bank - but currently less than 3% of World Bank energy spending supports the kind of energy that we know tackles poverty.

Petition to the World Bank

We’re calling on Melanie Robinson, the UK’s representative at the World Bank, to shift the balance to support renewable energy which tackles poverty, so everyone can have the chance to fulfil their God-given potential.
