Remote Village Electrification Programme

Remote Village Electrification Programme is an effort to reach out to the people based in unreachable areas and are generally deprived of basic amenities. It is an attempt to electrify the village by illuminating homes.

special events

Programme which is primarily dependent on donor contributions was launched in December 2014. Till date, couple of villages have been electrified in Dandeli Anshi Tiger Reserve Forests of Uttara Kannada District under the limits of Bjarkunang Gram Panchayat. Our first assignment was Pisose Hamlet with six houses. Each home was illuminated using Solar Photovoltaic technology and were given 4 lights, DC mobile charger. Power supply facility for having a community TV was also provided.

special events Earlier, this April 2015 one more village named Padshet was also powered under this programme. Same model of electrification was followed to this village as well. In either projects beneficiary contribution of 10% of the total project cost was received inorder to bring in sense of ownership among the beneficiaries. MGIRED Executive Director and Faculties contributed and also roped in donations from their near ones.

Many villages in the territory donot have electricity and have been identified for future projects. MGIRED is looking forward for donations from individuals as well as companies (under CSR Scheme). Individuals contributing will be acknowledged in our website.
