ABOUT SHINE

OUR MISSION

 

Shine mobilizes a blend of financial resources from values-based investors and funders and shapes the energy access and climate conversations while promoting and resourcing women and community-led innovations and bold, just energy partnerships in the Global South. 

 

OUR VISION

Shine envisions a world where renewable energy powers women- and community-led, inclusive and sustainable development initiatives that transform their quality of life, ensure their dignity and collective self-determination, and enable future generations and our planet to thrive.

 

Shine’s work is rooted in a Just Transition Framework, emphasizing a multi-sectoral and inter-disciplinary approach that brings together funders, values-driven investors, last-mile communities, women, climate-justice advocates and development partners to solve today’s most challenging economic, climate and environmental issues. We leverage the influence and access of our founding network to mobilize and facilitate funding for innovative collaborative efforts to bring renewable energy to a range of health, education, agricultural and livelihood initiatives at the last mile.
