The Government of India, Nepal & Bangladesh is laying more stress on schools in rural areas and is trying hard to raise their level of education. Measures like midday meals, free text books and uniforms along with Computer education etc, are also motivating and drawing more children to schools in India. But, there is no facility of light for studying in the night time since incessant power cuts & large numbers of off-gird villages are still a harsh reality.
Every child in India between the ages of 6 and 14 years (40% of 1 billion+ Indian Population) has the right to free and compulsory education, as per RTE Act 2009 from. This act seems to be difficult to realize without the presence of clean & bright light which most of the students in India are deprived of. Light is the single largest barrier towards un-interrupted study in remote villages. Lack of light is an urgent and preventable problem, and never before has there been a viable solution.
