This International Women’s Day, we are celebrating the power and potential of women to create a brighter future for people and the planet.
We’ve met young girls who are currently watching their dreams slip away as they fail to study due to lack of light. We’ve met women who have struggled to create a thriving business as they had to close when the sun set due to lack of light. We’ve even met mothers who have had to give birth in the dark as the clinic didn’t have light.
Lack of access to light is a burden that disproportionately affects women – limiting opportunities, jeopardising safety and stealing valuable working hours.
