Light. Hope. Opportunity. | Solar Sister

The Story

In Africa, women are using business and clean energy to transform lives. These women bring light, hope, and opportunity to their communities. These women are Solar Sister entrepreneurs.

Three quarters of Africa’s population live without access to modern energy. Smoky kerosene lamps and open fires make the simple daily tasks of cooking, studying, traveling, or running a business a challenge. Women–caring for their families and homes–often bear the greatest burden.

But women are also the key to change. Solar Sister helps local women launch clean-energy businesses and earn an income. Through Solar Sister, more women in more places have the opportunity to launch a business and bring energy to their communities.
