MUMBAI: With the objective of making a positive and long-term sustainable impact on the community, Future Generali India Life Insurance initiated its first CSR project in Maharashtra. This project has been launched in partnership with The Energy Resource Institute (TERI) to provide clean lighting to un-electrified households through the Light a Billion Lives (LaBL) campaign.
Future Generali India Life Insurance adopted 7 hamlets (small villages) in the Jalgaon block of Buldhana district in Maharashtra, which covered over 140 households and over 500 villagers. The financial contribution was used to erect solar panels for each household in the targeted villages, with each household getting two solar connections – one for electricity and one for mobile charging. The solar lanterns provide a sustainable option for electricity where kerosene lamps have been used for decades. This initiative has not only helped them reduce health hazards but enabled them to be more productive.
The solar lantern which gives 6 hours of powerful light, enables them to carry out their daily chores, cook in proper light and also helps them safeguard their fields at night. The solar panel has been installed on the roof of every house so the villagers do not need to travel long distances to charge the lanterns or pay any maintenance cost.
