We operate two nurseries for seeds and plants (one in Bihar and Jharkhand) that provide seeds to villagers so that they can start their own kitchen gardens. The first seeds and seedlings are currently being distributed to villagers participating in the kitchen garden program.
Congratulations to our Indian solar engineers Puja and Lakshmi! They have just installed a solar electrification system in the village of Kadal.

Since the beginning of the year, Puja and Laksmi Bihar have installed over 175 systems in three villages.
To reduce the risk of respiratory disorders and other related diseases that are caused by exposure to cooking fuels, we have installed smokeless stoves in all the kindergarten centers we support as part of our Early Childhood Development program.
