Where we come from

One for the Climate e.V.

Our roots

“One-for-the-Climate” was launched in 2016. It was established as as non-profit association by German law with seat in Münster. Working like a think tank it was seeking options international climate justice.

Together with “Wuppertal Institute”, “Bread for the World” and “United Evangelical Mission”. They discussed climate justice with representatives from both governments, companies, churches and non-profit organizations in Rwanda and Tanzania.
In addition, they wrote two feasibility studies that examined different ways of using renewable energies in Rwanda, Tanzania and South Africa. Based on this, they launched the “One Climate Fund Southern Africa” and the “One Climate Solar Homes Rwanda GbR”.
The latter one implemented together with United Evangelical Mission, Presbyterian Church of Rwanda, Anglican Church of Rwanda and Rural Development Interdiocesan Service a pilot project, serving 200 families in off-grid areas in Rwanda with solar-home-systems. The International One Climate Cooperative was founded in light of this successful project and will continue the work of One for the Climate e.V. in the future.
