Overview

Overview

In India more than 80 Million household are living without electricity. Those who are connected to grid, always face scheduled and unscheduled power cut. In most of the rural areas electric power is available during few hours in day. People who don’t have electricity spent INR 3- 5 / day for lighting using kerosene lamp. Even people who have grid connection use kerosene lamp or candle during unavailability of power from grid. Use of kerosene lamp is root cause of many diseases among poor people. Kerosene lamp produces green house gases like CO2. Schneider Electric India Foundation helps the poor people to have clean source of light at affordable price.

Schneider Electric India Foundation helps facilitate trained electricians with a “start up kit” and an entrepreneur training to run their own business.

This project supports socio-economic activities like :

  • School and college going children can read and write during the night.
  • Income generating activities like handicrafts, weaving, selling in market late evening etc.
  • Lighting up during festivals, marriage, late evening/night functions etc and enjoy a quality life.
