Impact Investing Project

I recently came across a spectacular impact investing project that meets and exceeds TBLI standards for a great impact project: scalability, simplicity, social and environmental impact, profitability, management, and ease of understanding. The Mawingu Project will  bring affordable electricity and broadband wireless internet into the rural areas of Africa. Check it out and watch the video. Amazing.
