    Litre Of Light

    from Dehradun, Uttarakhand

The team of the Litre of Light visited many slum areas and surveyed the most common problems in the city of Dehradun. Obviously, they listed many problems but the most common ones were water, light and hygienic conditions. So to make their conditions better we thought to innovate and make a product which could light up homes easily. 

So we took up the global initiative of litre of light and installed water filled bottles on the roof of peoples' houses. This turned out to be a bad idea because Dehradun being a monsoon rich city the leaks in the roofs were very common despite making it waterproof. So we innovated in our designs and came up with a powerful compact lantern and started installing them too. We also continued our rooftop designs having solar panel and a bulb with pvc pipe in the water.

Now with the help of some science institutions we are also working on a street light bulbs which turn on automatically when it senses no light. So we basically need funds to continue installing those two models and for the research and development of the next model.

The cost of each bulb is 250 each and the street light cost is yet to be determined but with the mass fund, we can cut down the cost of production and install more lights of people in Dehradun and Mussoorie. Statistically saying the survey we conducted showed that there are still some 10000 families without lights using kerosene lamps and by this initiative we reduce fuel emissions and reduce plastic in environment and hence lighting up the homes of economically challenged.

The Slum Area near Kevin Institute of Technology Dehradun named Thakurpur village had no facility of light hence 128 bulbs were donated with a team lead by Shankar Mutneja, Vansh Gandhi and Raghav Grover from The Doon School.

This is the new updated model with high power of led battery backup of 8 hrs with a great efficiency of solar panel we have currently distributed 128 of those with records and aadhar cards of the person whom we have given this light and will continue making these if we get enough funds!!!!
