Meet Merman, a retired journalist who lives in the Tbilisi Elders Boarding House with his wife. The Warm Elderly project had a strong impact on our lives. For almost 25 years, our building had inadequate heat and hot water. We had to live in severe conditions. But things changed with this project. Our comfort level significantly increased, and we are now able to spend time with each other in the hall or resting rooms, which we could have hardly imagined doing a couple of years ago. With your assistance, you have restored our dignity and pride. Warm Elderly, a project of @USAID''s Enhancing Capacity for Low Emission Development Strategies (EC-LEDS) Clean Energy Program, implemented by Winrock, won the National Energy Globe Award Georgia on June 5, #WorldEnvironmentDay. The project supplied the Tbilisi Elders Boarding House with a new solar hot water heating system and other energy efficiency upgrades to meet the residents needs, save money and help protect the environment for future generations. Before the renovation, the boarding house had high monthly energy expenses yet could not keep its residents warm in the winter. For a long time our tenants slept in coats, hats and trousers, unable to visit the cold dining room we were serving the meals in their rooms, said Darjean Tomadze, the boarding house director.

Northern Ghana receives 90% of its yearly rainfall during the wet season, when there is often too much water. Then the dry season begins, and suddenly there isnt enough. Since northern Ghanaians depend on water not just for drinking and washing, but also for their livelihoods agriculture, livestock and processing native shea nut into butter having enough water to perform these activities year round requires careful management of this erratic resource.
