"I am on a mission to provide clean and affordable energy to women and girls in African rural communities through the use of modern technologies like AI," says Monique Ntumngia, 29, founder of the Green Girls Organisation working in Sub-Saharan Africa. The organization uses a unique scoring algorithm called MNKB92 to optimize energy strategies for villages where they train women and girls to assemble and sell solar lamps and to deploy biodigesters to create methane for cooking and organic fertilizer for crops. The organization provides the materials for free but receives a 40% cut of the revenue from the sale of fertilizer and solar lamps. The organization helps women find markets for the fertilizer.
