Solar Sister

Solar Sister is an award winning social enterprise that is eradicating energy poverty by empowering women with economic opportunity and access to clean energy. Solar Sister combines the breakthrough potential of portable solar technology with a deliberately women-centered direct sales network to bring light, hope and opportunity to even the most remote unelectrified communities in rural Africa.

Solar Sister equips women with a "business in a bag", a start up kit of solar lights, mobile phone and radio charging solutions, training, ongoing mentoring and marketing support to launch their solar businesses. The result is a gender inclusive, market based, grassroots solution to spread sustainable energy use in Africa and beyond.
