"As the world now collectively fights against an unexampled disease, I recollect the times when many of us had jumped onto the bandwagon fallacy, thinking COVID-19 would never hit us. How long till we begin taking the climate crisis as seriously?"

We are extremely happy to share that we just received the first contract from UNHCR in Bangladesh of smart illumination of the lavatory facilities for Rohingya Refugees.
As open defecation remains a pressing issue when it comes to battling poor sanitation in Bangladesh, we are glad to be able to contribute to it, that, too for the people who are currently amongst the least privileged in the world.

Mourning the loss of a Sir Abed, Sebastian Groh, an Ashoka Fellow and founder of ME SOLshare Ltd. and also an Associate Professor at BRAC University shared his moments with the "Global Citizen":
"Sir Abed will always be a living legend. His accomplishments are unparalleled. May his soul rest in peace and his family have the strength to lead BRAC to continued success touching the lives of an incredible number of people, to fight poverty and inequality!"

SOLshare has been packed with guests since the last few weeks, and guess who've come to visit us?
On the right, you see, Asif Saleh, the executive director of BRAC, #1 NGO in the world, creating opportunities across 11 countries in Asia and Africa , having touched 120 million lives in Bangladesh alone! Asif has a proven track record of effectively managing interfaces of development programming, operational and financial sustainability and building effective partnerships, both within and outside BRAC. Since he is deeply anchored in driving the strategic direction of BRAC, he had great insights to share with us on how to stay deeply committed to developing a sustainable world which is self-driven by the 5Ds (Decentralization, Decarbonization, Digitization, Democratization & Disruption) Solshare believes in.
Below, we have Prof. Dr. Christian von Hirschhausen, who is a Professor of Economic and Infrastructure Policy (with tenure) at the Berlin University of Technology and the Research Director at DIW Berlin (German Institute for Economic Research). He is also a Research Associate at the MIT Center for Environmental and Energy Research (Massachusetts Institute ofTechnology, CEEPR) (since 2006) and Associate Researcher of the Electricity Policy Research Group, University of Cambridge (EPRG) (since 2008). Most recently, Christian worked on a project to explore energy pathways for the low-carbon transformation in India and is now interested to do related research with a focus on Bangladesh. Collaborations with BRAC University and SOLshare are in the making.
Above, we see Wendy Werner engrossed in a conversation with our tech team on how our system works and the magic it can do. She is the country head of IFC Bangladesh, and Nepal & Bhutan as well. With her background in environmental studies, she has a keen interest in the solar energy space.
And at last, we have Bärbel Höhn, from the Alliance '90/The Greens. As the former German State Minister for Environment and Agriculture, she played a leadership role and suddenly found herself from being an activist being put into the driving seat. She is now also the special delegate for Energy in Africa on behalf of the German Development Ministry. While researching in several Sub-Saharan African countries for the latest innovation to drive energy access, the name SOLshare inadvertently kept popping up. So, she came to visit us here in Bangladesh with a small delegation from the GIZ Head Office to come to find out more. When we showed how our P2P energy trading platform has helped thousands of people survive in ease, she may have found a personification of her in our tiny little but the more powerful SOLbox.

In this session, Bärbel Höhn, a German politician for Alliance '90/The Greens and the former State Minister for Environment and Agriculture, Sohara Mehroze Shachi, a research associate from UNDP and the curator of the Dhaka Hub of the Global Shaper community and Dr. Ainun Nishat, Professor Emeritus of C3ER, BRAC University and a key member of the Climate Change Negotiation Team for Bangladesh representing the country at the United Nations Climate Change Conferences were present.

Form our family on the occasion of Intl. Women's Day
While many think "workplace inequality" is an obsolete issue, we don't. It's important to remember that workplace inequality comes in the most subtle forms: from dismissing a woman's opinion to dismissing an opinion about a woman. This woman's day, we asked a few of our favorites to share their thoughts on workplace inequality. What are yours? Share with us in the comment section below!
Happy Women's Day! বিশ্ব নারী দিবসে বিশ্ব সকল নারী সমাজের প্রতি রইলো গভীর শ্রদ্ধাভরা শুভেচ্ছা।
