More than 1.3 billion people in the world do not have access to electricity. After the sun sets, the common areas in the villages are plunged into darkness, and people find it unsafe to step outside their homes. To overcome this, we came up with the initiative of installing solar streetlights in the villages.

“We thank the elected representatives of the four villages for extending their support in the installation of the solar street lamps,” said Mr. Sony Thomas, Director- Resource Management, World Vision India.
