Why am I fundraising?
The Baale Mane is based in a village on the outskirts of Bangalore City. Due to poor and irregular power supply, the home faces regular and long power cuts. This affects the daily runnings of the home, especially at night. Poor lighting, means that the children and staff often have to work and study by candlelight!The Baale Mane is also very concious of running the home efficiently, at the lowest costs with long-term solutions. A Solar Panel is a sustainable and environmentally friendly way of sourcing energy and lighting up the home at night!
What do I plan to do with the funds?
The money will be used wholly towards the buying and installment of a Solar Panel at the Baale Mane . This will have a host of postive effects on the daily routines and runnings of the home for 50 girls.
