We are a movement of women, men, allies, and partners who care about the well-being of people and planet. Our mission is to eradicate energy poverty by empowering women with economic opportunity.
We are creating a deliberately woman-centered network of entrepreneurs to bring the breakthrough potential of clean energy technology to even the most remote communities in rural Africa.
Our model is simple: each Solar Sister Entrepreneur buys her lights and cookstoves from Solar Sister, then sells and delivers them to her family, friends, and neighbors. We provide essential services and training that enable women entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses in their own communities.
Since our founding in 2010, Solar Sister has supported over 5,000 entrepreneurs, distributed over 400,000 clean energy products, and reached nearly 2 million people.
We believe everyone, everywhere deserves clean energy. We know women can transform their communities. Together, we are democratizing light and energy. And we are leaving no one behind.
