BENEFITING: EMPOWER GENERATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2014
I am running to raise money for Empower Generation, a social enterprise that empowers women entrepreneurs in Nepal to provide clean energy access to those living in the dark. As a board member, I am trying to raise $2,000 to help fund and train women to start their own clean energy businesses, selling small-scale solar power products to communities who have little or no access to reliable or safe electricity. With four operational businesses, we have provided 30,000 people with clean alternatives to dangerous and unhealthy kerosene lanterns, created over 15 million extra hours of light for work or study after dark, and offset 1000 tons of CO2. Please join me in empowering women to end energy poverty for families in Nepal!
