  • Type of organisation: NGO

FREMWA is an NGO ensuring mainstreaming gender into energy projects and ensuring that the practical and strategic energy needs of women and girls particularly are served. FREMWA advocates access to modern energy for women and rural communities, which is essential for the provision of clean water, sanitation and healthcare and for the provision of reliable and efficient lighting, heating and cooking. This modern energy should be affordable and easily accessible to reduce the reproductive burden of women accessing electricity, renewable energy technologies and cleaning cooking stoves and fuels. FREMWA organizes sensitization and awareness on the harmful effects of the use of inefficient fires for cooking, environmental degradation, climate change for traditional leaders, women groups and communities.
