Summary:
A third of all Indonesians have no access to electricity. Agricultural engineer Tri Mumpuni refused to accept this state of affairs. Her non-profit organization IBEKA, which she founded in 1993 with her husband Iskandar Kuntoadji, installs micro-hydro power plants in Indonesian villages. They not only supply electricity but also jobs and expertise into rural areas. 54,000 Indonesians are already profiting from this green power.
