Solar Power for Child Rehabilitation Center
Vikasana; Tarikere, Karnataka

April – December 2016
We funded the installation of solar power units to generate electricity and hot water at Vikasana’s bridge school for orphans in Duglapura. The electric units provide lighting for up to 8 hours a day, reducing costs and protecting the school from the frequent power cuts in the area. The water heater provides hot water for bathing, replacing an old wood-burning heater that was environmentally unsound as well as expensive to run. Both solar units have improved the lives of the children substantially.
