Solar Sister eradicates energy poverty by empowering women with economic opportunity. We combine the breakthrough potential of solar and clean cooking technology with a deliberately woman-centered direct sales network to bring light, hope and opportunity to even the most remote communities in rural Africa.
Investing in women is not only the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do. Solar Sister creates sustainable businesses, powered by smart investment in women entrepreneurs. When you invest in a woman, you invest in the future. Join us by investing in a Solar Sister Entrepreneur today.
To date we have trained more than 1,000 Solar Sister Entrepreneurs in Uganda, Tanzania, and Nigeria impacting the lives of more than 180,000. We are looking to double out impact in 2015.
We work in proud partnership with Clinton Global Initiative, Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, Ashoka, UN Women, Sustainable Energy For All, Africa Wildlife Foundation, Mother's Union, and many more.
