Why is this organization Amazing?

The business model that Solar Sister is testing offers a new and wonderful approach that could unleash the potential of women on the frontlines of poverty and help turn around the traditional view of aid dependency. Solar Sister makes the poor agents of change by providing capacity, income generating opportunities, a network of women that build on each other’s strength, and an example of how the sun is a positive and sustainable way to bring light to the poorest of the poor.
