Lets come to think of this, is it really that people from so-called ‘marginalized sections’ lack skills or the will to succeed in life? Are they not hard-wroking? or is it that our society has taken their existence for granted and ignored them completely.
Well, I think they are equally if not more entrepreneurial and hard-working, all they need, in most cases, is just a catalyst. They need our support in balancing the existing status quo, to come out of the serious deprivation.
Meet Noorjahan, one of our valued customers. She and her old mother run a small business of making hairpins. They are really good at it but they were forced to shut down their operations by 9 pm as they could only afford 2 hours of Kerosene lamp lighting every evening, and that too at a cost of about 500 Rs a month.
Now, Do you see the smile on Noorjahan’s face ? That is because now she is a proud owner of our solar-powered lighting and mobile charging solution (Helios) which will payback in less than 5 months & illuminate their house with crisp bright LED lights all night! They’ve extended their working hours and we hope this rise in productivity will surely catalyze their socio-economic development, all at a zero environmental cost.
