Kim Saylors-Laster, Vice President for Walmart Energy, recently traveled to Uganda and Kenya to see solar power in action improving the lives of those who have lived for too long without access to modern energy services. In the piece below, she describes her experience seeing families – and in particular children - benefiting from the educational, health and safety improvements that these lights offer to families in developing countries, and how businesses and non-profits are working together to provide these solutions to the families who need them the most.

Ms. Saylor serves alongside UN Foundation’s own Richenda Van Leeuwen, who leads the work of UN Foundation’s Energy Access Practitioner Network, as one of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Women Clean Energy Ambassadors, within the Clean Energy Education and Empowerment Women’s Initiative (C3E). The C3E Initiative is part of the United States’ commitment to the U.N. Secretary-General’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative.
