Love her work… But the Creepy all seeing eye symbols is all over the place, kind-of reminding us that The Illuminati is real, and it’s everywhere

AbzeSolar is founded by the Mossi Princess H.R.H. Princess Abzeita Djigma. She provides high quality solar lights and products to students and women to help build their small businesses and provide a sustainable future for themselves and their children.
Princess Abzeita Djigma has the following message: “Everybody is welcome on my continent. We are one human being. I am fighting for all of us: for the rights of women, for training of all youth and women.”
“Go where people need you! Go where you want to be!”
How can light change your life?
Light is something we take entirely for granted in the developed world, but there are 1.3 billion people worldwide living without electricity- and 620 million in Africa alone. That’s over 90% of the rural population of an entire continent. In this highly entertaining and educational TEDex talk, HRH Princess Abzeita Djigma from Burkina Faso in Western Africa explains what life is like living without light, and what she is doing to make a huge difference in her country.
Abzeita, who runs a company called AbzeSolar, is a direct descendant of the famous warrior and legendary Princess Yennenga who is considered the mother of the Mossi people of Burkina Faso. She’s surprisingly down-to-earth despite her Royal blood, a woman who radiates kindness and compassion. The Princess’s big smile and her warm personality is very evident in this talk, which was given in Amsterdam to an all-female audience.
Abzeita was sent to school in Europe aged 7, and is a trained engineer. The Princess has dedicated her career to designing solar energy lamps for Burkina Faso’s rural population, and says that light is more important than we imagine: it helps elderly people go to the toilet in the dark, it helps children to study and play, and it allows small businesses to work in the evenings.
The answer comes from a very special guest of TEDxAmsterdWomen: H.R.H. Princess Abzeita Djigma. She is a direct descendant of the famous warrior and legendary Princess Yennenga, considered the mother of the Mossi people of Burkina Faso and who’s son, Quedraogo, founded the Mossi kingdoms.
