Using Solar Energy to Promote Safe Motherhood

Sporadic electricity compromises the ability of community midwives to provide safe, appropriate, and timely medical care. Midwives are forced to make treatment decisions without the benefit of necessary diagnostic tests. Obstetric procedures are conducted under grossly suboptimal conditions, and can have tragic consequences.


In collaboration with Connecther & We Care Solar, the Edna Adan University Hospital is poised to promote safe motherhood and reduce maternal mortality by providing health workers with reliable lighting, mobile communication, and medical devices using solar electricity.

Superhero Without A Cape

HazeraBegum is determined to give her children the bright future that every child deserves. This Bangladeshi woman is the "mother" of 40 children, most the children of sex workers in bustling Dhaka.


Hazera understands their plight because she has lived it herself. After she ran away from home at the age of 8 to flee an abusive stepmother, she eventually was forced into sex work to survive. She has never forgotten the daily struggle for dignity and safety that is the lot of sex workers and their children.


Without Hazera's care, many of these children would be left on the streets while their mothers work, where they would be exposed to drugs, violence, and harassment. She is determined to raise them right and give them an education.
