We are disappointed that our crowdfunding experiment through PledgeMe proved not to work out, despite the hard work and great support from lots of folks. We truly appreciate all the efforts and offers of funding made by everyone, and we want you to know that this is not the end!
This setback does not lessen our resolve to find a way to get the households project done at Piu Village. We have a range of ideas that we will explore, including with possible local corporate sponsors, international funding programmes and philanthropic donors.
Awareness about Piu Village and BioEnceptionz’ efforts to bring biogas energy systems to Samoan communities got a huge boost last week during the visit of Vicki Treadell, the British High Commissioner to New Zealand and Samoa. Both local TV and print media ran stories about Piu Village and the upcoming biogas Resource Testing and Community Engagement Centre that we will build in Apia early in the New Year with UK funding support.
We are hopeful that this very positive awareness raising will help our efforts to bring together as soon as possible the needed mix of funding sources to make the Piu Village households project a reality.
So “watch this space” for future news! Thanks again.
The BioEnceptionz Team
