We are investing in others so Tuvalu can successfully achieve their goals.
How can you help? By donating to the charity we can ensure scientists do the due diligence on how to properly build and budget for a sustainable thermal energy plant on their islands and atolls. It can enhance the infrastructure to ensure that this legacy is fulfilled and Tuvalu has enough inward investment to become 100% sustainable in energy, water and food by 2020.
Tuvalu Charitable Foundation was created in order to assist Tuvalu with its 2020 objectives : - to become the first country in the world to be 100% sustainable in energy, water and food.
We believe future global business models will be increasingly drawn to the "us" society, and away from the "me" society of the past. A passion for philanthropy and sustainability is at the core of the Tuvalu Entertainment Ltd. DNA. We believe that successful organisations of the future will put more emphasis on helping others, as well as helping themselves, which is why Tuvalu Charitable Foundation raises a minimum of 10% net profits annually from Tuvalu Entertainment Ltd.
We know that where and when we focus our energies we can do great things at a local level.
Some Tuvalu Facts:
Tuvalu is the smallest country in the world. It remains a very proud member of the United Nations and the Royal Commonwealth of Nations, a voluntary association made up of 54 independent sovereign states which represent 30% of the world's population.
Tuvalu has one of the most stable democratically elected governments in the Pacific. Their energy needs could be assisted by their Thermal Energy reserves (some of the world's largest). Thermal Energy in its usable form creates hydrogen. This would allow Tuvalu to run their desalination plants virtually free of cost and have enough water for their whole country. Thirdly, their fishing territory is roughly equivalent to 25% of the Australian land mass and covers a large portion of the Pacific.
So the above illustrates how they plan to be sustainable in energy, water and food by 2020.
