Environment

Rural communities generally use traditional energy and light sources(candles, kerosene lamps or disposable batteries) that are inefficient, polluting and often harmful to people’s health. In addition, they make up a significant portion of the poorest families’ expenses. Enabling these populations to access clean energy as widely as possible is an essential lever in the fight against climate change.

I rent two lamps at the kiosk so I can open my shop after sunset. My income has gone up.

I charge my mobile phone at the kiosk. Before I had to walk 45 minutes to the next village.

  Before my children had difficulties at school, but now it’s getting better.
One of my daughters was even accepted into secondary school.

I use a lamp to keep an eye on my cow. I feel safer now.
