You know that feeling between close friends of being truly understood, supported, and valued? Hard to find, and when you do, you realize how much it matters.
Even harder to find in a business partner or sponsor. Yet, Mountain2Mountain has just that in our partner, GOAL0. If you haven’t heard of them, you should. They launched this year and are set to be THE source in power source. “GOAL0 delivers dependable access to renewable electric power where there is none.” In short, need power at base camp? Need to keep phones, computers, and cameras charged in war zones? Need to light a medical clinic in a remote Afghan village? Done and done. Oh, and you need to carry it in on your back, bike, or horse? Piece of cake.
In short, GOAL0 solved some of our potential security concerns when we are working off the grid in remote areas of Afghanistan. By providing us power and light in areas where there is no access to electricity. They also are providing solutions to light sourcing off the grid for our midwife program.
Several months ago, they connected with us, and made me a member of their adventure team, giving M2M an avenue for exposure through their website, blog, packaging, and media outreach. They provided me with equipment to take over to deal with the above power source issues.
What more could you ask for in a partner and sponsor?
And that’s the difference. GOAL0 was founded by Robert Workman whose own non profit, Tiefe, works in the Congo and was the inspiration and testing ground for portable, renewable, power source equipment. They dream of day with 0 illiteracy, 0 poverty, and 0 hunger. We couldn’t agree more.
Thus, a partnership with soul, with on the ground knowledge similar to what we face in Afghanistan, and with the commitment to make use their ‘power’ for good, was born. We are truly honored to be working with GOAL0 and look forward to a bright future, lit by the light of education and the help of the Sherpa Adventure Kit!
