The fundamental issues that drastically impact lives of many women and youth in developing countries can be solved by access to clean electricity.
There are 1.1B globally without electricity. This is not just about electricity. It implies:
Dealing with severe health hazards (due to smoke from burning fuels for lighting),
Fighting high chances of crime
Having a bleak future with poor quality of education to name a few.
The person who bears the brunt of these issues are the homemakers & caregivers: the women in these families. Fighting to getting even simple chores done before the sun goes down leaves the women economically dependent, with no voice in decision making and low self-confidence creating unsustainable communities.
