This project, that witnessed India’s contribution, is aimed at facilitating access to energy via solar panels. It targets 1,000 households and more than 6,000 women and young girls in the North and Far-north.

In the framework of the project, the ministry of water and energy adds, residents will be sensitized on the use of renewable energies and technologies that can help them avoid using firewood, which despite being harmful to the Northern region’s ecosystem is still widely used.
