Skip the Grid

RREAL works to end energy poverty on a global scale. Our Skip the Grid program empowers hospitals, schools, and other critical infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa with solar solutions.


Our first Skip the Grid project, PV for Phebe, is demonstrating a democratizing and resilient model of rural electrification for the healthcare sector in Liberia. We are so grateful for partners across the globe, especially the Women of the ELCA, who dreamt up this initiative and helped make it a reality.

November 1st begins our second 30K in 30 Days. We are challenging our supporters to raise $30,000 in 30 days. These funds will go towards our Skip the Grid efforts and bring clean, reliable electricity to Curran Hospital in Liberia. 

Your donation will bring us one step closer to achieving our goal.
