AROH Foundation Project Update

NextEnergy Foundation supported AROH Foundation to install 150 solar street lights (“SSLs”) across 10 villages in the Varanasi District, Uttar Pradesh, India. The villages were selected based on AROH’s existing presence and because they were lacking the adequate infrastructure for adequate power supply.

Following the installation of the SSLs, AROH started a key phase of the project aimed at involving the local community: Village Development Committees (“VDC”) have been created to ensure active participation in community engagement, awareness initiatives within villages, and monitoring of the SSLs. Please see the project page for more details.
