Program Overview:

Promoting Sustainable Livelihoods Foundation (PSLF) is a 501(c(3) non-profit entity in California. Its primary focus is combating the acute drinking water problems in remote areas of coastal Bangladesh. It is the socially responsive arm of its sister enterprise, Prokaushali Sangsad Ltd. (PSL), which is based in Bangladesh. PSLF has been implementing solutions with appropriate technology for the benefit of the disadvantaged. Particularly, PSLF combines renewable energy solutions for water purification to promote environmental sustainability. PSLF chooses its activity locations and beneficiaries where other partners and options are limited, and with a view to women’s empowerment and support.

Prokaushali Sangsad, LTD., (PSL) is a pioneer in solar electrification in Bangladesh. It is an engineering enterprise established in 1969 and has years of experience in engineering consultancy services. PSL has provided renewable energy solutions since 1997 as an instrument to combat severe and violent climate change. PSL provides innovative solutions in green technology, renewable energy, poverty alleviation, and gender equality in Bangladesh. It has been active in technology transfer in the energy sector for the benefit of the un-electrified rural population. It has worked in remote and underserved areas for the benefit of women and traditional communities with very little access to electricity or economic opportunities.

Both PSLF and PSL operate in remote and underserved areas, servicing disadvantaged populations especially women and children, and have a strong focus on environmental and social responsibility. The operational model is based on technical, financial, and social sustainability. These are to ensure projects and interventions continue to generate benefits for the communities long term and beyond the presence of any external support.

PSLF and PSL are also particularly interested in bringing new global knowledge and technologies to local problems and demonstrating use to local communities, local governments, and encourage the mainstreaming of innovations. Through national and international activities, the Directors take experiences of Bangladesh to inform national and global partners about on the ground successes and lessons in renewables, gender, and climate change mitigation. PSLF is an established woman owned and managed socially responsible organization. PSL is a long time successful woman owned and managed engineering enterprise.
