Impact Investing App GoParity Launches First Green Energy Project in Africa

By Eco Warrior Princess

GoParity, an impact investment platform based in Portugal and with more than 2.1 million euros of investment raised for environmentally and socially responsible projects is now launching its first project in Africa.

Its new project called SolarWood Hospital, will co-finance a renewable energy solution that will be installed at Good Shepherd Mission Hospital in Siteki, capital of Lubombo district, the poorest region of Eswatini (ex-Swaziland). With a capacity for 225 beds, the hospital’s occupancy rate reaches 130%, being the institution responsible for health care services throughout the Lubombo region (which constitutes more than a quarter of the total area of Eswatini and where approximately 212,000 people live).
