The women in Bihar still cook using cow dung cakes, and the entire family is inhaling hazardous smoke regularly. This campaign is to contribute some amount to complete the Decentralized community Biogas plant for the rural community comprising SC/ST and OBC. This project will support the "Swatch Bharat Abhiyan" campaign but will also support Ujjwala Yojna.

120 cubic meter Biogas plant will serve 75 households ( 450 people) to overcome from indoor pollution. According to the 2010 Global Burden of Disease, indoor pollution was the second biggest killer in India claiming two lives every minute.

We have been supported by "Bihar Startup Policy" with INR 10Lac and we still require another INR 9.70 lakh to complete the project. We have already constructed 120 cubic meter of Biogas plant but pipeline layout and Biogas meter and stoves are still yet to be installed. The raised fund will be used to set up other remaining accessories.

Financial Breakdown:
1. Lay down of GI pipe : INR 4,50,000 ( USD 6617)
2. Setting Biogas meter: INR 1,50,000  ( USD 2205)
3. Biogas stove :  INR 90,000 ( USD 1323)
4. Purification Unit : INR 2,80,000 ( USD 5588)
