[CLOSED] Lighting Up a Village in Ladakh,Hipti

The Ladakh bug bites everyone at some point and I'm not spared!
But meeting Paras and Sonal of (Global Himalayan Expedition)GHE at a conference last year gave a purpose to this year's trip.

GHE has a sustainable approach to raise funds, install and maintain solar micro grids high up the himalayan regions and enable these communities with livelihood options that pops up with the access to electricity. (something we take for granted in the cities)

I believe in their vision and aim to raise funds for this project of "Lighting up HIPTI".
BTW I've offered to document their work through videos and photographs, would be glad to send you all a postcard of my previous work from the high altitude regions or send a specially printed postcard once i get back home :)
Getting accepted ! :)

Hello All,

I returned yesterday from the expedition and back to work.

Thanks a lot for your donations. I have put in the rest of the funds from my freelance work and have completed the expedition, lighting up households having around 80 people with the help of two solar microgrids of 2500W each that light up the households, the monastery, a community hall and 2 street lights I've sent postcards from leh to the contributors. Hope they reach you.

I'll be sending a new set from Bangalore as i edit and process the pictures from Hipti :)

Thanks again for your generous support.

Please stay tuned for the photos, stories and other visual goodies from the journey :)
(I'll post my public fb link here as it is up!)

Dear Supporters,


Thank you, everyone, for the support generous contribution!!
This has been quite an overwhelming feeling when people trust and contribute resources towards this effort without much expectations.

I'll be heading towards Leh tomorrow via Srinagar.

I will be paying it forward to them and share stories for everyone and share postcards and photo-stories of the efforts to the contributors.

I'll be closing the payments as I reach Leh on the 5th of August when the expedition starts.

Hope people take this forward to next expedition!!
Livelihoods and electrification, one village at a time!
