Thanks to the incredibly generous support of our first donors in the past, we were able to hit our initial goal to bring light to villages across Wada, Maharashtra, India! A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL from those 200 light up homes!!!
Now we have set our sights higher and brighter for INR 10,00,000 we can light up the larger villages! LET'S TURN THE LIGHTS ON!!
India has a population of over 1 billion people. According to the World Bank, almost 1/3 of those people do not have any access to electricity: families are forced to burn Kerosene to generate light, which is expensive, highly polluting, and poses health and safety hazards. With an average daily income of less than $2, these people represent the most vulnerable strata of Indian society.
We work towards sustainable development and are committed towards creating jobs for disabled by providing them support, training, infrastructure so we can donate one cost effective Catalyst Solar lantern for each home (the Non - electrified one) across India.
This initiative provides reliable and clean illumination with productive hours in the evening with non-polluting, bright and reliable lighting that advances education, health, & livelihood activities catalyzes the rural solar market through creation of enhanced distribution network.
It also equips local human resources with technical and managerial skill sets for operation & maintenance through training & replaces the use of polluting kerosene as a lighting fuel.
It facilitates health in villages, within & around eco-reserves acts as incentive towards wildlife protection by providing alternative livelihood options
The drive will continue till 15th August 2017 & most of the lights will be distributed till Republic day 2018 we will illuminate the homes and minds of the villages across India with various resources available through your support!
