The acceptance and long-term sustainability of our projects is our primary goal. Having a clear understanding of the context and policies allows us to develop innovative solutions to help rural communities face the challenges of climate change. Our approach tailors each intervention to the needs of each community, ensuring it can be sustainable and have the most impact.
What sets us apart
Not all organisations share the same level of transparency, and not all projects are established with the same care and attention to detail.
Here are a few key points that set our projects apart.
Microsol’s projects are developed based on an integrated territorial approach that involves the participation of local communities, private organisations, and local authorities. All of our projects are established to meet specific needs. These needs are previously identified through studies considering national policies and local context and customs.
At the same time, empowering local communities is vital to guarantee the acceptance and long-term success of any initiative. From the initial consultation to establishing permanent jobs inside the communities, their participation is crucial in any project we implement.
Microsol does not engage in projects that involve the use of fossil fuels (for example the distribution of Liquefied Petroleum Gas) or the generation of negative environmental impact (for example the installation of dams), nor do we partner with entities that do so. Furthermore, Microsol does not work with those sectors that knowingly have devastating impacts on the environment and surrounding communities, such as the oiling and mining industries.
We only work with entities who respect human rights and the rights of their employees (and have never breached them in the past),
Finally, Microsol encourages partners to adopt a committed approach both in terms of managing the carbon emissions they generate and in choosing the projects they support.
As a social business, no dividends are paid to shareholders and 100% of the funds are dedicated to make scale the projects and make them sustainable. Microsol remains committed to transparency by monitoring and following up with all the activities conducted on the ground and sending regular reports to our partners.
