Solar mamas' leadership celebrated with energy!

Honouring Women and Women's Leadership this March!

During the women's know-how fair, from 6 to 8 March in Tuléar, the leadership of women in their communities was highlighted by twelve solar grandmothers from Ranomay, Vorojà and Ifanato. Their villages are home to local community organizations supported by WWF for the sustainable management of thorn forests in the Atsimo Andrefana region. As agents of change in their communities, they favored exchanges with visitors by demonstrating their know-how and sharing their experiences.

The Tulear Know-How Fair was an opportunity for these incredible women to show how individual commitment can change an entire community. For Rasoanantenaina Modestine, a solar grandmother from Ranomay, "it was a great honour for us to show visitors what we are capable of. We were all surprised by the great interest they showed in our demonstrations. »

Four women from the community of Beanjavilo in the Melaky region will soon attend the solar technology training course at the Barefoot College Madagascar training centre to bring light to their villages as well. The community of Benjavilo is among the most active in the conservation and sustainable management of the mangroves of the Manambolo River in the Western Madagascar. Access to solar electricity will help them take another step towards sustainable socio-economic development, with a more enlightened vision for the future.
