Kopernik's Wonder Women in eastern Indonesia

More than 500 women in eastern Indonesia are getting the chance to become social entrepreneurs distributing clean energy products to far-flung rural households, thanks to the expansion of an initiative by the non-profit organisation Kopernik. Supported by the Netherlands-based NGO ENERGIA with funding from the Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish and Australian governments, Kopernik makes clean energy technology such as solar lamps or clean cookstoves available to some of the world's poorest communities, while at the same time empowering women by creating business opportunities. Watch the video to find out how the system works.
