Why Mission Suryoday?

In India Rural electrification is a pressing problem. More than 29 Crore people do not have access to the energy needed for lighting, especially for those living outside major cities. Without electricity, poor communities are limited in their ability to enhance their income, improve food security, educate their children, and maintain good health. A lack of electricity also contributes to social unrest and inequity by often burdening women with physically taxing activities and reducing the safety of communities at night.
Today, there are large areas of the country where less than half the population lacks access to electricity, and hours of electricity available from the main grid are below the national average. States with low access to electricity also have the highest rate of overall poverty.

Our Goal

With Mission Suryoday, we pledge to provide access to clean, renewable and reliable solar light to as many poor families as possible.

As a part of this initiative, we will donate solar lamps to families who lack access to clean lighting solutions. With the generous support of people like you, we will be able to help many of these families and individuals to lighten their homes, which will ultimately result in better standard of living and a healthy sound society.
