(Business in Cameroon) - On June 14, 2019, 29-year old Cameroonian Monique Ntumngia was awarded the WWF Africa Youth Award 2019 in Mombassa, Kenya. This is the second time she is receiving that award for her startup “Green Girls”, launched in 2016.  

“Green Girls” sensitizes rural communities’ young women on the use of renewable energies. Thanks to this startup, 3,000 Cameroonian households have officially been powered with biogas while 100 others were provided with solar power equipment.

 “ It’s been my good fortune that Green Girls has allowed me to combine two of my great passions: sustainable development and female empowerment(…)Renewable energy is an essential part of any solution if we are to meet both Africa’s future energy needs and the environmental challenges that lie ahead. Today’s youth will be at the forefront of meeting these challenges and women will have a central role to play,” the young woman said on receiving the award.

The WWF Africa Youth Award encourages U-30 Africans that contribute to nature conservation via original initiatives.

 “Green Girls” is supported by the US state department via African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program.
