The 100MW Singida wind farm project is being developed by Wind East Africa Ltd., whose shareholders are Six Telecoms (Tanzania), Aldwych International (U.K.), and IFC, a member of the World Bank Group.  The low-cost renewables project will be located 700 kilometres from Dar es Salaam.
 
Mr. Rashid Shamte from Wind East Africa said, “By undertaking pioneering projects like Singida, the private sector can work hand in hand with the government to realize Tanzania’s power potential. We would not have reached this stage of project development without the support of the Government of Tanzania.”
 
The Singida project’s total cost is estimated at $285 million, of which IFC, Aldwych and Six Telecoms will contribute roughly $71 million.
 

Today, more than 1.3 billion people across the globe lack access to affordable and reliable electricity - with dramatic consequences for human health, education, and economic well-being. But more than 50 million of those live in areas with abundant wind resources.

Wind for prosperity takes its departure in 2011, when Vestas' CMO, Morten Albæk, had the idea to connect two data sets; wind data and areas with the highest level of child mortality. By combining these data sets, rural communities without access to reliable electricity but with an abundance of wind emerged, resulting in the vision: Wind for Prosperity.

Wind for Prosperity will create a world of new opportunities by accelerating access to clean water, healthcare, irrigation, education, communications infrastructure, and other social and economic benefits. It is different to most other corporate initiatives to alleviate poverty. The concept is commercially based and is more scalable and sustainable than efforts purely reliant on philanthropy and donations. It is business as a force for good.
