Solar Light for Snehalaya and its children

Being in rural areas, there is hardly any electricity to fulfill even the essential requirements but there is plenty of sun. We wish we had capital funds to use solar light for our electricity needs but it required a capital funding of £100K.

"Snehalaya" meaning "the home with love", is a care home for disabled and destitute children, homeless women and the aged, including a school for special needs, multi-sensory room, vocational training and health centre spread out in an area of 25 acres with facilities for hydro & physio therapy, yoga & meditation with its own gardens, farms, orchards, Gaushala (cow shed), temple, sports & play fields and more. We are building a main stream school for children esp. girls from surrounding villages planned to start in early 2011. There is plenty of sun but hardly any electricity to fulfill even essential needs of for the children there in Snehalaya. Unfortunately we have to depend upon generators with its own hazards as well expensive to maintain. There is plenty of sun but we can not use it. It requires nearly £100,000 as capital fund to make use of solar light to produce 25 KB of electricity for the essential needs in Snehalaya as required.
