Solar Sister

Unverified non-profit organisation

Solar Sister is a social enterprise that provides women with training and support to create solar micro-businesses, providing household income for the women, and light for their communities.

The women form a by-women, to-women distribution network that is strengthened by women’s natural circles of family, friends and community. This direct-sales network brings solar technology to the women’s doorstep and provides income generation opportunities for the women.
