On 25th April Nepal was struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Another 7.3 earthquake occured on 12th May. Our team across Nepal are safe, but like many people they are scared.
We are heartbroken for our Nepali sisters and brothers and all they must endure. We are with Nepal for the long-term and we will rebuild a cleaner, more resilient energy future.
Empower Generation is a social enterprise empowering women in Nepal to distribute clean energy solutions to their communities since 2011.
- In the first two weeks after the earthquake we distributed over 2,000 quality solar lights, and an additional 7,000 through our partners like Mercy Corp, bringing immediate relief and critical light to more than 53,000 survivors.
- We donated solar lamps from our inventory in Kathmandu to help relief workers at hospitals and people in shelters.
- We set up a mobile charging station at our office in Lazimpat.
- We have solar lights available for immediate distribution and have more mobile chargers shipping to support the international relief effort.
We need your help to continue our work on the ground to offer immediate relief via our existing inventory and strong local distribution network.
Your donations will:
- Directly cover the cost of solar lights donated to people working in hospitals, search and rescue, shelters, and people suffering the most during this trying time.
- Directly cover the cost of bringing in more solar lights, chargers and power stations to provide reliable energy services that are critical for Nepal to recover over the coming months.
Nepal demands clean energy now, tomorrow and in the future. Your support makes this possible.
- $15 buys those who are sleeping outside a solar light
- $50 buys two solar lights and mobile phone chargers to stay connected
- $100 buys a group of lights or a power system to power rescue/relief efforts
