The EDEA Foundation

Energy is: “…the golden thread that connects economic growth, social equity and an environment that allows the world to thrive.” (UN, 2012) as eloquently described by UN Secretary General, Ban-Ki-moon.

The EDEA Foundation is the philanthropic heart of the EDEA Energy Group, dedicated to bringing sustainable energy solutions to the forefront and addressing both immediate and long-term community needs for a healthier planet.
While EDEA Energy focuses on Defence and Telecommunications industry solutions, the EDEA Foundation focuses on:

  • Promoting renewable energy, encouraging the adoption of clean renewable energy sources for long-term environmental sustainability.
  • Enhancing energy independence by deploying modern energy solutions to help communities reduce reliance on non-renewable sources.
  • Overcoming geographical challenges and focusing on remote areas with challenging terrains where traditional energy solutions are impractical or too costly.
  • Collaborating and partnering with community-based organisations, non-profits, and other program providers to address a broad range of community issues with collective expertise and resources.
  • Providing long-term community benefits by shifting towards sustainable and stable energy solutions for electricity generation, which improve health, economic development and education opportunities, leading to stronger, more resilient communities.
  • EDEA Foundation Vision

  4. Commitment and dedication to long-term engagement and support includes ongoing monitoring, evaluation, and adaptation to ensure lasting benefits for communities and the environment

Our program delivery approach

Our program delivery approach is designed to bring our engagement principles to life, ensuring that we design, implement and evaluate
programs and services that effectively benefit both the environment and communities.

  • We begin with Needs Assessment, identifying and understanding the specific needs and priorities of each community.
  • Program Planning follows, where we develop detailed plans that align with our vision and purpose while addressing the identified needs.
  • Next, we focus on Resource Mobilisation, securing the necessary resources, including funding, expertise and technology, to support program implementation.
  • During Program Deployment and Implementation, we execute programs with precision and flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances.
  • Monitoring and Evaluation is an ongoing process where we continuously assess program performance and impact, gathering feedback and making necessary adjustments.
  • Finally, we emphasise Feedback and Adaptation, incorporating community feedback and lessons learned to refine and improve future initiatives
