100 MILLION LIVES
1.2 BILLION PEOPLE WITHOUT ELECTRICITY
Worldwide one out of every seven people every day wakes up to a world where they have no electricity and little to no hope for a future in which they will have power that will allow them to put food in their refrigerator, provide electricity for their children to study at night, and to have enough energy to provide clean hot sanitary water for their family. This is wrong and Libra Project is committed to disrupt this terrible reality. Later this year, Libra will release its 'Improve 100 Million Lives' roadmap which will detail how Libra will provide electricity to 100 million people and empower them to escape poverty by 2030.
Libra Project will soon release its blockchain-secured platform. The platform combines the principles and accountability standards of Impact Investing with the security and trust delivered by Libra Project’s blockchain ecosystem.
The platform will empower tens of millions of people worldwide to enter a blockchain-secured platform, which can be used to review our projects and vote on which renewable energy projects should be developed next. Our unique governance model ensures that Libra’s resources are invested in community projects that have the most pressing needs for renewable solutions.
Furthermore, our blockchain platform will reduce the cost of project funding thus increasing the amount of available capital to be invested in our renewable energy projects across Southeast Asia and East Africa.

THE FOUR PILLARS OF SDGs
The four principles underlying the 17 SDGs are:
SDGs must be open to all countries worldwide;
SDGs must integrate social, economic, and environmental benefit that are sustainable;
Leave no one behind
SDGs must be available to and benefit all people of all cultures, genders, and economic classes so nobody is left behind; and
SDGs should encourage everyone to participate.
At Libra Project, we honor the four pillars daily in our work. Click on our corporate video to learn more.
