Youth Empowerment through Sustainable Energy: From Waste to Livelihood.
Youth Empowerment through Sustainable Energy: From Waste to Livelihood.
Building on the ongoing effort by partner NGOs to disseminate Biogas digester technology and community development projects in Sabah, KOPEL aims to deliver biogas digester (BGD) and solar PV training to youths from rural communities in Malaysian Borneo. The aim of this project is to improve public health, waste management, and environmental sustainability, as well as develop skills and create livelihoods for the youths. The training will entail both classroom and hands on components utilizing demonstration projects in Batu Puteh and Penampang, and additional pilot projects in communities where the youths are from. This approach will incentivize youth participation as well as long term maintenance of the demonstration projects. Through this initiative, we also aim to increase the income earning potential for the youths through future community and private solar and BGD projects.
