Rerouting Power. Reshaping Health.
To decrease vaccine preventable diseases worldwide by completing the world “cold chain”.
To improve the energy efficiency of the cold chain by using power generated at cell phone tower sites.
Short Term Goals
Energize the Chain currently operates in other countries through partner organizations, which will run the day-to-day operations of our work. By 2013, we anticipate the successful launch and execution of a pilot program in India and/or Africa. Energize the Chain is currently in the process of registering as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in the United States.
Long Term Goals
Contingent on the outcome of the pilot, we intend to expand the pilot to reach more of the 2 to 3 million people dying of vaccine preventable diseases every year. By partnering with both private and public agencies, we will be prepared to transition to other targeted areas in India and Africa. Shortly after, we anticipate enlarging our scope to other rural parts of the developing world where effective vaccines are needed.
