Lighting up lives

2016-09-16         news

On the 24th of August, a few Grade 9 students from Parikrma & Delhi Public School (DPS, North, Bangalore) did something truly extraordinary through the 'Light Up Lives' project. Recently, Parikrma partnered with DPS & Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Rural Energy (MGIRED) & decided to raise funds and provide a solar lighting system to two houses in a hamlet located in the Kanakapura Wildlife Range. These two homes are mud huts with thatched roofs & have no form of electricity. The students along with the MGIRED team took a day out, visited the hamlet, spent time with the family and finally lit up their lives all in a day's span. Seeing the joy on the faces of the families when the first bulb came 'Alight' made the long journey and trek to the hamlet worthwhile. This is just the beginning for us as there are so many more lives to light up…
