Lifeline’s initiatives target clean water and clean energy out of two core convictions:
First, taken together, the absence of access to these two basic resources is the greatest single cause of human misery in the developing world.
Second, providing affordable access to clean water and clean energy solutions is, by far, the most cost-effective way of reducing that misery.
