A renewable source of light is a miracle for women whose productive hours have always been controlled by sunrise and sunset. With a bottle of light in hand she is safe, and able to fill her evenings with work, study and family. She is no longer in the dark.

In many developing countries, women are being trained as solar engineers. They are being taught to build solar lanterns, clean cookstoves, and a brighter world for themselves and their children.


“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.” -Martin Luther

We are professional women 55+.  Most of us were active in the Women’s Movement.  We have traveled extensively in developing countries.  On the ground we’ve seen compelling evidence of the truth of the research, the profound difference it makes to society if mothers have food security for their children and sustainable futures for their families. We’ve been awed by the transformation of women who found opportunities to emerge from poverty and taken control of their own lives.  We’ve walked beside them and heard their stories.  We’ve seen their self-esteem grow, their leadership skills emerge and their voices heard.  We can help change the world for these women for decades to come by investing the same passion we summoned for our own battle for women’s equality.
