2,500 Solar Sister Entrepreneurs spreading light, hope, and opportunity.


Solar Sisters are role models of women in business and the technology industry.


4+ hours of solar light means more time to study.


Solar lamps replace kerosene, which produce toxic fumes, black carbon, and increase risk of burns.


Opportunities for solar powered businesses like phone charging.


Energy savings mean money can be reinvested in lifting a family out of poverty.


Women invest 90% of their income into their family’s well being.

Solar Sister Globe


85% of rural population own phones for business and connecting to the world. Only 5% have a place to charge them.


2/3 more efficient with impacts on health, time savings, and household expenses.


More efficient cookstoves reduce fuel use by 30-60%, resulting in fewer greenhouse gas and black carbon emissions and reducing impacts on forests, habitats, and biodiversity.


Brighter lights at night are safer for traveling and performing necessary chores.


Solar has the potential to reach the 600 million people in Africa who live without reliable electricity.
