The Solar Village Project is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization. We are actively assisting Indian and African families improve their lives through access, acquisition, maintenance and knowledge of solar power systems in homes with no other other power source. In today’s world, we believe electricity to be an essential resource, similar in importance to water, food, and shelter. Without it, people are marginalized. With it, people are empowered through light and access to information via their cell phones.
In August of 2014 The Solar Village Project implemented our first full scale village project, distributing 75 solar home lighting systems, one for every home in Gauterine Village located in Bihar India. Places like Gauterine are on the bottom of the socio-economic scale, with the people earning less than 2 dollars a day on average. This means the cost of a solar home lighting system is to expensive for them. But for just $50 you can give one home in one village ample, clean, bright light and the ability to charge their cell phones at home for the first time ever.
Why You Should Donate
- Our project implementation model is highly effective. By giving each home an individual solar power system, we empower them to take ownership and responsibility for their own energy access. The units we provide are capable of providing power for many years.
- Without access to electricity kerosene is used for home lighting. A dangerous, unhealthy, ineffective and costly alternative to solar power.
- Our team of volunteers who live in the area’s where we work are there make sure that any problems with the solar home power systems are quickly fixed. This keeps the lights running in the villages and slowly but surely helps to cultivate a lifestyle where access to electricity is the norm.
$50 covers the cost of a complete solar home lighting system capable bringing ample light and power into a village home.
