Krishna Devi Vanvashi Balika Awasiya Vidyalaya, Chitrakoot, Madhya Pradesh

It is a residential school for tribal girls situated in Majhgawan, Madhya Pradesh. The project was started and supported by Deendayal Research Institute (DRI) which was founded by Late Nanaji Deshmukh. The school aims at all round development of the downtrodden scheduled tribe’s students through education, vocational training and good conduct. Extension and dissemination of education in tribal villages so as to join them with the national mainstream. The school has been developed in a way so that it can stand as a role model for the other educational institutes.

However, despite all efforts the school was struggling to have a trusted and reliable source of power to support all its regular activities. In most of the years the school was experiencing more than 8 to 10 hours of power cut. Even the voltage level of tMB1he available power was below the standards. The Frequent power cuts in the evening caused problems in the education of girls. Schools were struggling to provide clean lights to students and alternate sources of power like diesel generators were getting expensive day by day. Sewa International Clean Tech Initiative volunteers surveyed the school and identified the critical load of 1.2kW, which includes lights, fans and computers. The team also identified 24 sq.m. free space on the roof of the admin building. Based on this a 2kWp solar power plant was installed at the school with 5 hrs battery backup. The total cost of the project was raised as donations by volunteers and kind help from people like veteran technocrat Shri Naresh Sharma, California.


Sewa International invites volunteers to come forward and support various initiatives by volunteering with us.
