Challenge

Sky-rocketing land prices in Myanmar have caused a rise in the number of landless people. These people then move into off-grid communities in order to survive. These numbers contribute to the 1.1 billion people that live without electricity across the world. This effects every aspect of their daily lives and makes it very difficult for children to engage in school.

Solution

Jezuba solves these problem by directly giving solar powered lamps to kids in these villages. This allows them and their families to keep up with their classwork and gives them a better opportunities to break the cycle of poverty. Jezuba's commitment to creating the next generation of leaders and innovators across the globe and from different backgrounds helps these kids make an impact on their communities and in the wider world.

Long-Term Impact

Access to education can make a world of difference. Schooling can break the cycle of poverty, help with a nation's economic development, and can be a driving force in gender equality. In addition, investing in solar energy will give these communities power while also avoiding the negative effects of climate change.
