Project Indiana

Project Indiana is a philanthropic trip led by the electric cooperatives of Indiana to the rural communities of Guatemala.

Electrifying Remote Guatemalan Villages​

About Project Indiana

We take electricity for granted. But many families in remote Guatemalan villages live the simplest of lives. They endure extreme hardships. Through Project Indiana, Indiana’s electric cooperatives are empowering global communities one village at a time.

Since 2012, Indiana electric co-ops have banded together to electrify remote villages in Guatemala. In the end, it’s not only light that Project Indiana brings — it’s life. Hope. Progress. Opportunities. And it brings full circle what happened in the 1930s here in rural Indiana — people working together to light a community, one pole at a time, to make a better life.

Mission Statement

To help rural Guatemala advance as rural Indiana did in the 1930s by adopting villages, bringing them electric power, and supporting them as they form electric cooperatives that enable them to enjoy a better way of life.
