Challenge

In rural populations, more than 70% of villages have no electricity & about 60% in target areas face poverty due to consecutive floods 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2014. Still about 60% people do not have water to irrigate their lands and cultivate crops. The targeted person needs support of solar light on urgent basis.

Solution

Solar lanterns will be distributed to the villages having no electricity to show people how to use solar lights. We provide their first kerosene oil lamps during floods and now they asking for the solar lights as fuel prices are high and it also pollute their house. The solar lights will help them to study, farm visit, can charge their mobile and light at their house

Long-Term Impact
