Myanmar Project Report #2

Thank You!
Thank you for donating to Empower Generation’s project: Empower 100 Women to Sell Solar Lights in Myanmar! More than two-thirds of rural people there do not have access to affordable, dependable electricity. Your donation is addressing this problem by training women to sell clean energy products to their rural communities. 
 
Project Update
Our initial 6-month pilot with the Thabarwa Buddhist Center ended in September and provided us with further information on the needs and market for energy consumption in Myanmar. The pilot highlighted the market demand for larger systems that can serve multiple purposes and run larger appliances such as TVs and fans. We will be implementing pay-as-you-go options via mobile phone for larger systems at our next project site. We are currently establishing where the location of our next project site will be based on accessibility, grid connection, and relevant organizational presence.
 
Next Steps
In order to tap into community-led initiatives, we will be partnering with a local organization with an established presence in the community and active development and women's empowerment programs. We are currently reviewing a number of organizations to determine which one shares our goals and can provide an effective network as well as support resources at the project site. Additionally we are exploring various collaboration opportunities with organizations in Myanmar providing alternative energy, clean-cook stoves, and business skills and training for women's development.
 
Call to Action
While we have achieved a lot, we need your continued support! Please share our project with your network and encourage them to donate. Without donations, we will not be able to reach our goal of training 100 women to sell solar lights. Thank you!
