Our UNSDG Exhibit at COP26

Thank you for visiting us from COP26 where we have displayed some of the most poignant photos from our global initiatives to address the UN Sustainability Development Goals. We are thrilled to be featured among some of the largest figures in solutions-based initiatives to address the threats of Climate Change.

Collectively, COP26 participants pledge to foster greater efforts to mitigate the effects of Climate Change following the summit. Rural women, like those in the photos, benefit the most from our efforts. Women help us achieve Climate Justice while they uplift themselves through the tools and training they receive.

The photos featured showcase women who courageously strive to bring prosperity to their villages. They deliver rural resilience to communities through the introduction of Solar energy. The solar-powered light offers a clean, renewable and affordable solution. Our mission is to tackle 14 of 17 UNSDGs by 2030. The work of our brilliant women beneficiaries helps to make this mission a reality.
