Why support a Sextant project with your financial contributions? Sextant projects work to provide reliable energy to power critical lighting, essential equipment, clean water systems and other vital health care needs, while saving limited resources that should be spent on providing care.
Many hospitals and health clinics around the world are energy poor. They are without critical lighting to perform both simple and complex tasks or without consistent energy to power vaccine refrigerators. Energy can also be unreliable, and when it is available, it’s expensive. Clinics sometimes spend more money on diesel energy than on medicine. Finally, as either primary or back-up sources of energy, diesel fuel is not only expensive but also emits toxic fumes into the community.
Sextant financial models create affordable, sustainable solutions that are customized to the project needs. We use a combination of “power purchase agreements” (PPAs), carbon offsets, in-kind donation of materials and labor, and financial contributions to make it all work.
