Frequently asked questions

CLI provides opportunities for people to help themselves through programs that support healthy, sustainable communities. Our foundation of renewable energy allows us to work in underserved rural communities, bringing them world-class health care, research and innovation; clean water initiatives; agricultural development; and vocational training programs. Our goal is to empower people and families to support themselves and, therefore, their communities.

CLI has full-scale programming in Zimbabwe and Malawi.

We build wind and solar systems that produce reliable, cost-effective power in communities that cannot be reached by the national grid, making facilities like state-of-the-art hospitals possible.
