What do women in Namibia and the Navajo Nation have in common? They are part of the 1.4 billion people worldwide (70% of whom are women) who live off the electric grid. Without electricity, businesses must close when the sun goes down, children do not have the light they need to study after dark, and people are cut off from global news and the marketplace. Elephant Energy brings energy to off-grid areas and generates income in rural communities by engaging women as Energy Entrepreneurs. project reportread updates from the field

In rural Namibia, women work in the fields, cook, clean, educate their children, kill snakes, travel to the market, care for sick family members... In essence, most everything that gets done is done by women. All of these activities can be made easier and more efficient with assistance from clean energy technologies sold by women entrepreneurs to their neighbors. project reportread updates from the field
