that is bringing in a new era of reliable, sustainable electricity for
education. The objective of the initiative is to remove obstacles to education
brought on by irregular power supplies in earthquake affected area. To make sure that all students have

energy. The solar lights are not only environmentally friendly but also a
cost-effective solution for communities facing energy challenges".
