SOLAR LAMPS FOR SHG MEMBERS
As a part of promoting ecosystem and also curtailing the use of Kerosene in Homes for lighting lamp, we encourage our SHG members and their families to use solar d-lights and so far 1 lakh such solar lamps were purchased by them with a cost of Rs.5.5 crore.
STUDY LAMPS TO THE STUDENTS
We are promoting d-light study lamps among the students community to help in their studies. Presently, the Tamilnadu is facing ‘power cut’ which is a great hindrance to children appearing for X & XII exam, and in order to give uninterrupted power supply for study with solar d-lights. Hence in Jan-Feb’13, IVDP has generously donated Rs.40 lakhs worth of 10,000 solar d-lights (study lamps) to the children of SHG members and later on this project will be extended to other students with low cost.
