Mission

blueEnergy delivers energy, water, and sanitation to some of the world's most isolated, marginalized communities, providing a foundation for health, education, and economic opportunity within the context of a changing climate. Our community-based work provides an immersive, enriching learning platform for future global leaders interested in energy, water, climate change and international development.

Notes from the nonprofit

We transform lives on the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua, the poorest region in the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere (after Haiti), where nearly 80% of the population does not have access to electricity, clean water or sanitation.
