In 2017 and 2018, Women on Wings, Philips Lighting India and Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India, successfully ran a program, funded by the Philips Lighting Foundation, for distribution of Solar Lighting Systems in off-grid or under electrified rural households in Pilibhit in the state of Uttar Pradesh, which positively impacted the lives of over 11,000 rural beneficiaries.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
