About this photo

A member of the Lenca Women’s Ceramics Cooperative in rural Marcala, Honduras holds up a piece of Ocote candle that she uses when she needs light after the sun sets on her village.

In Central America, 7 million people live without any access to electricity. Worldwide, more than 1.5 billion people have no electricity. Alternative sources of energy, such as kerosene and wood, are expensive and have a negative impact on both human health and the natural environment.

Our Solar Energy Program is helping to bring clean energy to local communities throughout Central America by providing access to affordable solar powered solutions.
