Project Solar Bulb (Bangladesh)

by Green Channel

Summary

This project aims to combat environmental problems and energy poverty in Bangladesh. Being successful with our pilot project "EnviVolunteerism" last July (2011) in building "awareness through action", now we are focused on bringing cost effective and sustainable form of solar power in the rural homes of Bangladesh to lighten up the lives of people who still live in darkness. We will be following the "Isang Litrong Liwanag" (a Liter of Light) model for our project: http://isanglitrongliwanag.org

Challenge

Energy Crisis is one of the biggest problems of Bangladesh. More than 162 Million people in Bangladesh do not have access to power/electricity. This project aims to provide a cleaner and greener source of energy to the rural homes.

Solution

Having a light in the rural homes (many of which are usually one roomed houses) will boost their level of work efficiency, thus income, standard of living, economic well being, and even educational performance of the children in these homes (besides environmental sustainability) which have a direct relationship with the ability to escape poverty

Long-Term Impact

By having a cleaner and greener source of energy at home, we prevent environmental degradation, besides combating poverty in Bangladesh
