The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development in Israel is "happy to announce progress on [their] Faith Based campaign for solar in Africa, in partnership with Gigawatt Global and Green Anglicans." The mission of the project is "to put religious teachings on creation care through rapid deployment of solar energy and sustainable rural development into practice to combat climate change and support sustainable development in Africa." They aim to establish at least $1 billion in solar photovoltaic projects of 5 MW or larger in Africa over the next five years and in so doing create a new strategic partnership model for faith institutions and communities in Africa.
