In rural areas of Nicaragua, many families have to burn candles, wood or kerosene for the simple luxury of lighting. These dirty, expensive fuel sources reduce air quality and make it hard for families to continue their days when the sun goes down.
Power to the People's Solar Lighting Program employs local women to sell high-quality affordable solar lighting solutions to families in their communities. The women make a little extra money and the families in the community save money while reducing their dependence on dirty fuel; a real win-win!
After a very successful pilot program, Power to the People is raising money to expand the solar lighting program by hiring more women to sell lights in their communities! Help us continue to use renewable energy technology to help dramatically improve the lives of people in rural areas of Nicaragua.
