"I am deeply thankful for my wonderful family I love with all my heart. I will try every day to give a smile and to give back what life gave to me."
Dr. Kaiser Chaudhary
"I was fortunate enough to grow up in Germany, a country where equality of opportunity is important and lived. Unfortunately, this is not the case in the countries of my ancestors, today's India and Pakistan. Millions of people still live there without electricity. Solving social and societal problems entrepreneurially, but at least contributing to reducing them, is what drives me. With the PowerOneforOne Foundation, we want to engage socially in order to contribute in the long term to millions of poor people in developing countries being able to experience equal opportunities that I came to enjoy. Electricity is an essential prerequisite for this. Fortunately, humanity is technologically ready to produce clean energy even in the most remote regions of the world, but often there is a lack of financial resources. This gap should close our PowerOneforOne Foundation to help people to help themselves."

"After having been in the renewable energy industry for many years, which until a few years ago has concentrated almost exclusively on western countries while developing and emerging countries hardly played a role, I am pleased to be able to expand the focus and achieve even more than "just" implement large renewable energy projects. It is a matter of the heart to support rural electrification with our PowerOneforOne Foundation and, together with numerous dedicated partners, to improve the quality of life for as many people as possible. I am pleased to accompany the development of the PowerOneforOne Foundation in the next few years and I wish that we can persuade many people to support our project."
