Towards a Future where Women Shine in Society: Light Switches to transform women’s status and health

Switching a light on before dawn and after dusk.


And it gives light. This everyday action, which most people in the world take for granted, is new for women living in non-electrified villages in Africa. Being able to switch on a light has brought radical changes to their lives. This brochure tells you an innovative partnership involving public, private sectors and civil society in Ghana, which has not only brought light but also better health and status to the village women.
