Mwangaza Light is a faith-based social enterprise partnering with churches to enhance energy access, women empowerment, and climate action in Kenya. We are a women-founded and women-led enterprise with a mission ‘to transform communities and protect the environment for future generations.’
We designed Green Churches as a framework for churches to grow environmental stewardship and lead a change to clean energy adoption and climate action. It builds last mile distribution of clean energy solutions into church infrastructure with leaders raising awareness ‘from the pulpit’ and lay people providing access to information, products, and services to the congregants and broader community. It supports tree growing as a form of climate action that also contributes to food security, water security, and economic growth.
We work closely with Anglican Church of Kenya on growing Green Anglicans Movement across Kenya, and with the main churches in Elgeyo Marakwet County - Africa Inland Church, Reformed Church of East Africa, Catholic Church, Anglican Church, and Deliverance Church - on energy poverty and climate action.
