Similar to many other laudable organizations/initiatives globally, one of the major challenges has been directly related to unavailability of capital to conveniently fund projects. “We have a number of people who are willing to learn a certain skill but due to the fact that we do not have funds to cover their training they have not been able to,” Oguegbu said. “Also we’ve had the problem of indifference behavior by people. A lot of people are indifference to the subject of renewable energy and climate change. This makes our task a bit difficult and to solve it, we wrote 4 books to specifically address each strata of the society in a way and manner that will enable easy comprehension”.
To solve the problems highlighted through Glow Initiative for Economic Empowerment, they work and partner with other organizations to identify communities enriched with economic resources and provide training for SMEs creation along the existing value chain. They also provide mentorship to the trainees to enable them succeed right from the idea stage.
