What We Do
Through solidarity, support, and training in their groups and with every new skill learned, women from vulnerable households believe that they can be agents of change. This sense of agency helps them come together, out of their traditional roles, and work towards building a better village and society. SeSTA teams, based in far-flung areas, are therefore able to meaningfully engage with rural communities to reach Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Gender Equality, Good Health & Well-Being, and Climate Change resilient villages by ensuring access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy.
