Sustainable Development
Is a Global Mission

by Douglas Mackenzie

T

he IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMCS) has been a financial supporter of
IEEE Smart Village (ISV), one of the priority
initiatives of the IEEE Foundation. ISV provides a catalyst for development in disadvantaged communities around the globe by providing
technical and financial support to local entrepreneurs who
expand access to both energy and education to remote
communities. This model of sustainable community development is successful because the empowered beneficiaries play an active role, which sets ISV apart from other
humanitarian and development initiatives. As evident in its
early stages, the program produces tangible results.

Since its inception in 2010, ISV has provided energy
access to more than 300,000 people in rural communities
around the world. This access to energy, in addition to supplying power for basic home needs, has provided power for
education centers in the Himalayas, coffee mills and
schools in Papua New Guinea, and multiple agricultural
co-ops in Nigeria, Uganda, and Cameroon. ISV's development model, driven by the efforts of local entrepreneurs,
addresses the unique needs of each community.
Ifeanyi Orajaka, founder of Green Village Electric
(GVE) in Nigeria, spoke about ISV's support of his local initiative: "Through the seed funding and technical support
from IEEE Smart Village, we have grown our business
from being a startup founded by three young Nigerian
undergraduate students to one of the largest photovoltaic
solar minigrid social enterprises in Sub-Saharan Africa."
