2015 Impact Report

September 06, 2018

Five years since the founding of Solar Sister, thanks to your support, investment, and commitment to our mission, we have grown from a humble start to a network of more than 1,000 amazing women and men clean energy entrepreneurs across sub-Saharan Africa in Uganda, Tanzania, and Nigeria. Together, we have positively impacted the lives of nearly a quarter of a million people with light, hope and opportunity.

Women are at the very center of the solution – they manage household energy expenses which can be as much as 40% of their household income. If we can reach them with appropriate, affordable clean energy technologies such as innovative solar lighting and improved cookstoves, we can transform their lives.

Moving into our 5th year, we celebrate the courage, positivity, determination, and passion of the Solar Sister Entrepreneurs.
