Lighting Village Homes with Solar Lamps

Darkness To Light

It is difficult to imagine life without any light during night. Power cut spells out maddening difficulties to the daily life. Cooking, Eating, Studying, Working and all other activities come to a complete standstill. If the power cut stretches into a few hours, life becomes unbearable…. so to say. Imagine life without any proper light nights after nights without any end in sight. Complete rural electrification is still some way away and the life in rural villages after dusk is fought with unimaginable difficulties. Even where electrification has happened, the rural population so poor that they are unable to afford electrification for their own house.

Yet some meaningful respite could immediately be given to these village folks by providing them Solar Lamps. These lamps charge themselves during day and are source of light during the darkness of night. Depending on the quality these solar lamps can be procured from Rs.1000/- to Rs.2500/- per pc.

Our this Project aims at distribution of Solar lamps to non electrified villages of rural west Bengal and adjoining States. We have already distributed about 1500 such lamps in Durgapur, Sunderbans and Simultala in Bihar in association with Durgapur Steel Plant and Cognizant. The results have been encouraging to say the least.
