We had a good session with Nusantara Development Initiative (NDI) at this month’s Meet and Greet. NDI is an award winning non-profit social enterprise that empowers rural Indonesian women to be solar lamp entrepreneurs.
Our speaker for the evening was Wichers, who is currently NDI’s Manager (Partnerships) and is based in Bali. Through the presentation and interactive question and answer session, he shared with us more about their “Mothers of Light” program and how that has empowered women across Indonesia through social entrepreneurship, while simultaneously helping thousands of individuals overcome energy poverty through access to safe and reliable lighting.
