Let's make a difference

Each Agariya family will be given Rs 1,50,000 (about $2250) by AID via its partner-NGO Vikas. Along with their Rs 30,000 this  enables them to get the solar system with installation and insurance.

Every Agariya family pumps 100,000 liters of saline water per day.  They currently use diesel pumps.  When they switch to solar it will save them $700-1000 per year.

This will enable them to repay the loan in 3 years to Vikas which will be given to more Agariyas to get more solar pumps as well as for other purposes collectively determined by AID, Janpath and Vikas.

Your support enables the Agariya families to stand on their own feet and show the way for 10,000 other Agariyas doing the same work to get out of the recurring diesel expenditure and move to a more efficient renewable energy source.

Those who donate to the Solar Pump Fund will be able to contact the Agariya families who are using the pumps over the next 3 years.
