Empowering Women For Results: SELF’s Solar Market Gardens
In the fall of 2015, the Solar Electric Light Fund’s (SELF) Solar Market Garden (SMG) project was selected as a winner in the prestigious United Nations “Momentum For Change Lighthouse Activity” competition. As a result, last December the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) brought representatives from SELF, as well as Issifatou Kissira, President of the women farmer’s coop in Benin, to the Paris Climate Summit to showcase the SMG project to the world. Since then, they have released a compelling video about the SMGs that features some of the women project beneficiaries as well as Jeff Lahl, SELF’s Project Director.
