In 2016, Kopernik worked harder than ever to:
Strengthen our award-winning work connecting simple technologies to people who need them the most through our local partners and our network of Wonder Women.
Increase our collective impact by working with more partners across multiple sectors to generate new ideas and establish more effective ways to resolve persistent development problems.
Embark on a series of new experimental projects that test promising ideas to find what works to solve the real challenges of people living in the last mile.
Improve our communication and reach amongst development professionals to share more ideas and evidence on what works to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals together.
We believe that with more innovation, collaboration and experimentation of ideas,
we can affect the kind of change that will mean people in the last mile
can live a dignified life free of poverty.
Kopernik sources simple and affordable products
that address typical problems faced by people living in the last mile.
Since 2010, we've connected technology with:
Wonder Women Indonesia is an economic empowerment program that empowers women to become
micro-social-entrepreneurs. We support women to sell simple technologies - including solar lights,
water filters and clean cookstoves - in their communities. They earn a margin on every sale, boosting their
income to support their families and themselves, while also making clean energy technologies available
in remote villages in some of Indonesia’s poorest provinces.
