Smart Villages believes that people in remote villages deserve the same opportunities as everyone else. Remote villages are often “off the grid” and do not have a reliable supply of energy for lighting homes, cooking, charging mobile phones, or powering businesses. The energy sources they do have, such as kerosene lamps, are often harmful to their health. The national grid may never reach many of these remote villages, but other solutions exist. We believe that energy access in off-grid communities can change lives—but only if it is implemented for the long-term and includes community involvement and training.
