Mission: To improve people’s lives by providing access to electricity and fostering the development of sustainable businesses. Our volunteers offer mentorship and resources to empower less economically developed communities for lasting change.
KiloWatts for Humanity (KWH) has been implementing international rural electrification projects since 2009 and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in January 2015. Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds, unified by the common desire to end energy poverty around the world.
KWH builds on the past success and experience of faculty, staff and students at Seattle University that are committed to sustainable energy development projects. Our volunteers are dedicated, multi-disciplinary and experienced in development work. Many have past experience with Engineers Without Borders, the IEEE Power & Energy Society and IEEE Smart Villages.
