Description

Not having access to electricity, life in Ambakivao, Madagascar was dark. A group of grandmothers decided to change that, bringing light to their community by becoming the village’s first solar engineers. With the help of the World Wildlife Fund, they swapped petroleum lamps for solar panels and successfully brought electricity to more than 200 families in their village. Now, they’re leading the renewable revolution in rural Africa.
