Employing low-income locals to sell affordable, sustainable household products, changing the everyday lives of disadvantaged urban and rural communities.
Pollinate Energy is improving the lives of India’s urban and Nepal’s rural poor by giving them access to sustainable everyday household products and empowering local entrepreneurs. The social enterprise joined Business Call to Action (BCtA) in September 2018 with a pledge to reach an additional 500,000 people amongst India’s and Nepal’s poorest by employing an extra 400 female sales people, called Pollinators, to sell 100,000 sustainable solar lamps, clean cookstoves and water filters by 2020.Sixty-five million people living in India’s city slums, and 24 million across rural Nepal, rely on kerosene and open wood-fires for light and cooking, without access to electricity grids or water infrastructure. Many live in self-constructed tarpaulin and mud huts, and earn less than US$1.50 per person per day, without access to financial services.
