About us

Solar Sister is a social enterprise that provides women with training and support to create solar micro-businesses, providing much needed household income for the women, and much needed 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 the solar technology right to the women’s doorstep and provides income generation opportunities for the women.

Solar Sister provides women with education and training to better equip them to operate and maintain the solar technology and to help them achieve success as independent business women. We believe in the value of long term relationships to create an atmosphere of trust and understanding that enables the sharing of knowledge and technology.
