Project Report | Apr 30, 2024
Rising Star Highlight: Ol

By Naw Khine Thazin Ni Win | Project Leader

Ol
Ol

Ol, an engineer and a clean energy advocate, was born in a rural area of Cambodia where she grew up outside the electricity grid. She was the first woman in her village to enroll in a university degree, completing a Bachelors in Electrical and Energy Engineering in Phnom Penh on a full scholarship. Ol often engages in volunteer activities to promote science and engineering among high school students, and raised awareness about the potential of clean energy to hundreds of Cambodian university students during Clean Energy Week. Her efforts were recognized with the Clean Energy Award, honoring her commitment to advancing clean energy solutions.

With over five years of experience in the renewable energy sector, Ol has directly impacted over a thousand individuals by providing affordable solar power solutions and assisting nearly a thousand rice farmers with solar-powered water pumping services. Eager to extend her reach to impoverished farmers, she is devoted to creating a climate-resilient agricultural system that utilizes renewable energy to boost crop yields. Ol is pursuing a master's degree in Renewable Energy at Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland to equip herself with the knowledge and skills needed to further drive meaningful change.

Through an income-sharing agreement from Wedu, Ol secured partial funding for her tuition fees, leveraging additional support to cover the remaining costs and living expenses. Ol is also matched with a Wedu mentor who supports her in navigatingacademic goals and refining leadership goals as she works towards realizing her vision for her community in Cambodia.

Ol said, "My focus is on developing practical renewable energy technologies tailored to benefit vulnerable groups within Cambodian, particularly by providing access to sustainable water for crop cultivation, thereby enabling them to increase their income."

We are very thankful to you for supporting more women achieve their educational goals by donating to the Sujata Baskota Honor Education Funding. Your contribution directly supports women like Ol by allowing them to focus on their studies and follow their dreams to create positive social change. Thanks to you we have been able to raise a total of $6,938 in online donations to contribute towards financing for education, an amount that can provide financial support to more women.
