Remba Island: Creating Transformational Change with Handshakes not Handouts

Film & Campaign Description

This film showcases our innovative partnership with the Remba Island community and a private sector partner, DREAM EP Global Energy Ltd who have provided solar electricity to the Island.  Having seen how first-time access to electricity could be a lever for social change, DREAM and Remba Stakeholders invited PFP to work with the community on sustainable development initiatives.  This film tells the story of this partnership and the impact that we have created together for the benefit of the whole community.

We commissioned this film as a way of showcasing how we can work with businesses to help them achieve their ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) objectives, delivering tangible social and environmental impact.
