Renewable World

Presenter Gethin Jones makes an appeal on behalf of Renewable World, a charity that works in developing countries to tackle poverty through renewable energy. Gethin meets Sumina, who lives in a remote village in Nepal. Like many of the 80% of Nepalese who rely on the land for their livelihoods, the harsh landscape, lack of water and energy meant Sumina couldn't grow enough crops to feed her family. With very little income, Sumina struggled to provide an education and healthcare for her children. But thanks to the charity, a water pumping system was installed in Sumina's village. Not only does Sumina now have water all year round to grow vegetables to feed her family, but she is also able to provide an income by selling high value cash crops at market.
