Solar Chirag Objective - To impart skills of making solar based Lamps for marginalized women.
Project Summary - The project ‘Solar Chirag’ aimed at training women and children in the slums of Delhi to make solar lamps using waste material like plastic bottles; bamboo sticks etc. through simple color coding. In slums, where electricity is hardly available, these lamps helped children in studying after dark and were used to light up the dark streets making the slum colonies safer. The project also aimed to disseminate knowledge about solar energy use as well as channelizing the handmade, reasonably priced solar products into urban markets thereby focusing on creating women solar entrepreneurs.
