Suzlon Foundation, in collaboration with Menda Foundation, undertook a drive to install solar lights across six welfare hostels in Anantapur.
Seventy-six solar-powered lights were installed in six welfare hostels at Uravakonda, Vajrakarur and Konakondla, benefiting around 700 students living in these hostels.
Aligned with Suzlon foundation’s zero darkness initiative, the installations of solar lights has helped students to receive uninterrupted power supply during study hours, providing an enabling environment for students to study and improve their learning capacity. The solar lights have been installed in the study rooms, study corridor and living rooms of the hostels.
Jasmine Sofia Gogia, General Manager, Suzlon Foundation, said in a statement, “It is our constant endeavour to align our CSR programmes to the requirements of local communities and solar light installation initiative is another step in that direction. Suzlon Foundation strives to create a sustainable life for communities where we operate and we will continue to support many such initiatives which are sustainable and beneficial to the society at large.”
