The Corbett Foundation donates Solar-powered Lantersn for Rakhi village in Bandhavgarh, MP.
Solar Lanterns for Rakhi village in Bandhavgarh... The Corbett Foundation funded 60 Solar-powered Lanterns to the villagers of Rakhi situated at the outskirts of Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh. The project has been implemented in association with TERI and is a part of Light a Billion Lives campaign. The vil...lage has no electricity supply. The solar-powered lanterns would substantially bring down the use of fossil fuels and firewood for lighting purpose. The Corbett Foundation would like to partner with corporates and NGOs to take this initiative to other villages in MP and other parts of India as well.
