Introduction Abze Djigma
H.R.H. Princess Abze Djigma is a Mossi Princess from Burkina Faso and a direct descendant of Princess Yennenga, a famous warrior in the 12th century, and considered the mother of the Mossi people, whose son created the Mossi Kingdom in the 12th century.
H.R.H. Princess Abze Djigma is internationally recognized as a role model for empowering the base of the pyramid, for recognizing the importance of the informal sector and for unleashing the potential of women and youth in developing countries. See here for instance the letter from the Secretary General of the United Nations, H.E. Ban Ki-moon. She is Special Envoy of the President of Burkina Faso for SDG’s and Climate Chang and Ambassador for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency of Burkina Faso.
The H.R.H. Princess Abze Djigma Foundation primary focus is to provide light and energy to those who have no access to electricity yet. One of the means is supporting the roll-out of the MAMA-LIGHT® Initiative for Sustainable Energy, a Worldwide program that provides access to affordable and sustainable energy for women, small business and children. It empowers the informal sector, it drives the generation of new jobs and it creates a sound basis for gender equality and women empowerment. The program is selected by the United Nations at the Solutions Summit at UN General Assembly in 2015 as one of the 14 breakthrough solutions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
With her activities and programs the H.R.H. Princess Abze Djigma Foundation supports the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and helps the Least Developed countries (LDC’s), the Land Locked Developing Countries (LLDC’s) and Small Island Developing States in implementing the Paris Agreement with realizing their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC’s) and with the MAMA-LIGHT® Carbon Offset.
