Grid Earth Project Receives 2013 Austin Award
The Grid Earth Project has been selected for the 2013 Austin Award in the Non-classified Establishments category by the Austin Award Program.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) October 25, 2013
Each year, the Austin Award Program identifies organizations that we believe have achieved exceptional success. These are local organizations that enhance the positive image of Austin organizations through service to others. These exceptional organizations help make the Austin area a great place to live, work and play.
The Grid Earth Project distributes safe, solar light to remote villages and communities in developing nations worldwide. Through their efforts, lives are being saved, injuries and illnesses are being avoided, education is being enhanced and progress is being made to end energy poverty. Nearly one fourth of the world population lives without access to safe light and uses kerosene or other dangerous fuels for indoor lighting causing more than 2.5 million deaths per year.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2013 Austin Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Austin Award Program and data provided by third parties.
