Story

Every day when the sun sets, 3 small tribal hamlets in Jharkhand dwell in darkness. There is no celebration in the households after the sunset, children cannot study and reaching the nearest hospital at night is nearly impossible. This Diwali, we plan to bring light to 100 families  in these hamlets in Jharkhand.

Dartoli, Jamtoli, Berghertoli tribal hamlets are far away from progress and people there have always lived without electricity and developed infrastructure. Forgotten by their countrymen and governments, they live their lives are without any progress.

When These Tribals Saw Light for the first time

In July 2014, Mlinda and Milaap partnered to bring development to tribal hamlets in Jharkhand, the Santhals and other tribes from Ayodhya hills and the Sundarbans. Mlinda, a non-profit, worked with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI), and National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) to install affordable solar grids to supply electricity to the isolated settlements, benefiting over 280 families. 

The word has spread among the tribal families. There are so many more hamlets, families, and children waiting eagerly for a chance at a better future 

This Diwali, Let's Help 100 Tribal Families

 
100 families will be connected to provide them quality and reliable renewable energy based power for domestic lighting, education and running of irrigation pumps. The project aims for the total electrification of the tribal hamlets. This would provide them quality and reliable renewable energy -based power for domestic lighting, education and productive usage such running of irrigation pumps and rice hullers for their livelihood enhancement.
