The full equality of rights and opportunities between men and women is fundamental to our human society.
Gender equality is essential for peaceful societies and the exploration of full human potential. In addition, when women are empowered, it ensures growth of the economy as well as productivity. According to the UN Secretary-General, Mr. António Guterres, “achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls is the unfinished business of our time, and the greatest human rights challenge in our world.”
Even though our world faces a persistent gap in access to opportunities and decision-making power for women, many organizations have made large strides in achieving this sustainable development goal; employment and advancement of women. One of these companies is WATT Renewable Corporation. While having 30% of their leadership roles handled by intelligent women, WATT Renewable supports female entrepreneurs that are supporting their communities.
With the provision of constant electricity and power generation for these communities by WATT Renewable, thriving small scale businesses and SMEs belonging to women have a better chance of expanding. Food stores, restaurants, fashion houses, malls, cold rooms among others need constant electricity to be run efficiently and WATT Renewable provides this, subsequently supporting development and productivity for both men and women in the target communities.
WATT Renewable is committed to providing energy-related products and services that build infrastructure such as residential homes, schools, hospitals, places of worship, community centers, market squares, and all other locations where electricity would be needed. This makes these structures readily available to female pacesetters ready to fully achieve their potential through academics and entrepreneurship paving way for economic progress and sustainable development.
At WATT, the organizational mandate is to work towards contributing to each of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in as many ways as possible. Through organizational leadership, as well as the community support for female entrepreneurs and their impact in communities, WATT will continue to help minimize the inequalities in gender today and tomorrow.
