Solar Sister is an organization dedicated to bringing simple, solar-powered light to women and girls in rural Africa. This by-women, for-women service means things like:
Girls don't miss out on study time. As they normally attend to domestic chores after school, unlike their brothers who do their school assignments immediately when they get home from school, so the girls fall behind in school and are more likely to drop out.
Women are unhampered in their ability to care and provide for their families as they struggle to cook dinner by the poor light of tadoobas, and spend too much of their time and the family’s income on gathering fuel.
