Zelena Akjica, Hungary
The Ray of Sun – Light of Hope campaign, conducted by Zelena akcija and the People for People initiative, which is supporting poor communities in Sisak-Moslavina County, demonstrated a great example of humanitarian action and the benefits of renewable energy sources. They used – for the first time – a crowdfunding platform and managed to exceeded their target. 500 supporters donated around €14,000 euros and made it possible for six households in Sisak-Moslavina County – one of the poorest areas in Croatia – to finally get electricity after years and even decades of living in the dark. The initial goal was to raise funds for five households, but the campaign exceeded the target so they could include one more.
