Pollinate Energy is a social business with a simple mission – to improve the lives of India’s urban poor by giving them access to life-changing products. With a focus on sustainable solutions, such as solar lights and improved cookstoves, people are able to reduce indoor smoke, have better quality light, use less fuel and save money.
We find local people who are passionate about helping slum communities in their area, and train them as "Pollinators" to provide these products to families who need them the most. We support our Pollinators to sustain their micro-social businesses which alleviate the financial, environmental and health costs of kerosene – an expensive, harmful and unsustainable energy source.
By bringing international students and professionals together via our Fellowship Programs, Pollinate Energy also inspires the next generation of leaders in sustainability and social enterprise.
