Suryoday Mar-Apr 2014 Drive


More information about Mission Suryoday here.
As a part of Mission Suryoday Jan-Feb 2014 drive, we visited Mohri Village. And donated ten solar lamps. Mohri is only 70 KM away from Pune (one of the developed cities in India and a major IT and Automobile hub). This village is untouched by electricity till date. Michael Faraday, Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla and countless other scientists invented electricity in 18th century with the dream that this invention would change the course of humanity and humanity will take a next giant leap towards evolution. Almost after 200 years of those inventions, they have now become an integral part of most of the humanity.

Still it is hard to believe that a significant number of humans lack an access to electricity. Rather I would say: they lack an access to basic life need. A life essential named “Light”.
Yes Mohri and countless other villagers still spend half of their time in darkness. Now it will be more appropriate to say that they “were spending” half of their time in darkness. After Mission Suryoday’s Jan-Feb 2014 drive, we promised Mohri villagers that we will come back with more lamps, with sufficient lamps to bring light to every home of Mohri Village. And we fulfilled that promise. Team Suryoday bought light to every resident of Mohri village plus an adjacent village named Singapur. By donating 24 more solar lamps on 30 March 2014, we bought light to every home of Mohri and Singapur.
When we talked with past beneficiaries, they expressed their happiness by showering blessings on team Suryoday. According to villagers, these lamps are way better than conventional kerosene lamps, chimneys etc. One lady was quick in estimating the money they saved because of solar lamps, according to her she have saved around ₹ 200 in two months. Notable fact here is that average monthly income of villagers is ₹ 500 per month. So saving ₹ 100 is as good as 20% more saving every month. Which they can utilize in more important expenses.

Team Suryoday is extremely happy to announce that, we have bought Faraday, Edison, Tesla’s innovation to two more villages.  And now ready to leap ahead for more work.


Along with Solar lamps, we carried out donation of used but usable clothes, stationary and other life essentials to the needy. Thanks to all donors, we had real hard time in lifting all those heavy bags full of clothes to the village😉 As this village does not have all motorable road, one need to leave his vehicle around 700 meters before village and need to walk.
Team Suryoday is thankful to all volunteers, supporters, donors, well-wishers and critics. It is because of them all, we are growing as a team to do more good work. And to bring light to more lives.
