The RUWES Initiative was derived from a need to save lives, the earth and improve rural economy. It targets the under-served rural women who are usually off grid, energy-poor and have the highest incidence of health related issues from harmful energy practices. RUWES makes access to energy easier in a cost effective way for rural women, develops viable business models aimed to create a financial value chain for rural women, by providing them with the necessary tools (access to capital, skill and capacity development) needed to improve upon themselves and create a successful and sustainable business.
