#11: Opportunities In Renewable Energy With Ifeoma Malo

December 10, 2016

Ifeoma “Ify” Malo, the founder of the Clean Technology Hub & Country Director of Power For All, joined me on The Iveoma Show to talk about the opportunities in renewable energy for Nigerians, especially women. Ifeoma discusses that 60% of Nigerians are living without access to electricity and this energy poverty mostly affects women and girls.

Ifeoma reminded me that because women and girls bear the primary responsibility for cooking, washing, fetching firewood and other chores in Africa, lack of electricity significantly impedes their economic advancement and even affects their health and personal security. So join us as we explore the opportunities in renewable energy for Nigerians and African women everywhere.
