Anganwadis in 4 villages light up with solar power
In view of the state government’s initiative of digitalising the ‘anganwadis’ in the state, NGO Maharashtra Village Social Transformation Foundation (MVTSF) has provided solar power support to anganwadis in four villages of Paithan tehsil of Aurangabad.
The villages, Jambhali, Chincholi, Mehearbanaik Tanda and Jambhali Wadi, were receiving inconsistent power supply due to which services at digital schools were badly affected.
The NGO, through its rural development fellows, have connected the schools to solar power supply. Four digital schools will now get uninterrupted power, thereby improving delivery of educational service.
This moves comes after a baseline survey conducted by ‘gramparivartaks’ (rural development fellows) in these villages.
The NGO’s project aims to electrify remote villages of Maharashtra through non-conventional energy sources.
The NGO has installed 13 rooftop panels with a capacity of 300 to 400 megawatt power. Around 300 to 350 students from four anganwadi schools would benefit from this initiative.
