The Grandmas Leading Africa’s Solar Revolution

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. By swapping petroleum lamps for solar panels, they have successfully brought electricity to more than 200 families in their village. Now, they’re leading the renewable revolution in rural Africa.

This Great Big Story was made in partnership with Dangote.
