Challenge

Naton Ki Mandia is a village in Gaziabad district lying in the National Capital region of India. In spite of being so close to the Capital, this village still has cluster of families living Below Poverty Line(Antodaya). 250 such Antodaya families belonging to caste group called 'Nat' live with no access to basic necessities like water, drainage or electricity. The village has access to the main electricity line supply but it caters to the better off caste group.

Solution

This endeavor would empower the rural poor, increase their efficiency in production, and hence increase their disposable income. Depending on renewable energy is not just the answer to climate change but change to poverty as well.

Long-Term Impact

Solar power will provide better working conditions, increase the efficiency of the people to produce and earn more. TV in school will encourage childrens to school. Solar Water Pump to provide safe drinking water. Low carbon economy at village level.
