In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Shine Campaign launched a Recovery Fund aimed at uplifting women entrepreneurs and community organizations that are providing renewable energy to remote areas. Through microgrants ranging from $3,000 to $10,000, the campaign is financing projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America aimed at economic recovery through green jobs. Given that women with deep ties to their communities can mobilize lasting change, the fund also centers women’s initiatives surrounding the renewable energy transition and post-pandemic economic recovery. The Shine Campaign also prioritized funding energy projects near clinics in order to power medical equipment essential to COVID-19 response, addressing the intersection between equity, environmental justice, and health.
