As Karuna-Shechen enters our 20th year of service in the Himalayas, we are reminded of one of our main objectives: to empower, support, and increase opportunity for women.
Because of your support, our program Bring Light to Isolated Villagers in Nepal is making an important impact. With women leading the way to distribute, install, and provide maintenance for home solar lighting systems, we’re bringing light and opportunity to the communities we serve. Many of our women solar installers are taking their skills and expanding into entrepreneurial opportunities by opening small electronic shops or offering additional services. To that end, Karuna-Shechen is offering additional support to these women through specific trainings that add to their skills, such as cell phone repair.
By supporting opportunities for women, we are improving the quality of life of our solar technicians, their families, and the entire community.
On behalf of everyone at Karuna-Shechen and the villagers we have helped, together, thank you!
