Zilla Parishad Dhasaiwadi School, a rural school in Murbad, Maharashtra is facing severe problems due to inadequate electricity supply. Currently, 43 students study here from Grades 1-4. The school is located in a remote area where electricity is not easily accessible, and the power supply is extremely irregular. This has resulted in significant challenges for the school, as it affects the availability of essential services such as lighting, cooling, and other electronic equipment necessary for teaching and learning.
The school is struggling to provide a conducive learning environment for the students. If this issue persists, it may hinder the academic progress of the students and ultimately affect their future prospects.

PROJECT UJWAL SHIKSHA :
My friend, Aarav Jhawar, and I are committed to solving this problem and helping these students study better. The proposed solution is to install solar panels (1kw PV Solar power plant off-grid system ). The solar panels will be used to generate electricity from the sun's energy, which will be used to power the school's appliances.
IT COSTS INR 1.75L TO SET UP THE SOLAR PANEL.
By installing solar panels, the school will be able to generate electricity during the day, even when there are power outages or load shedding in the area. The solar panels will provide a reliable source of electricity, which will be especially important for the students and teachers who rely on electricity to power their equipment and lighting.
PIC: The kind of solar panels that would be installed.
The cost of procuring and installing the panels is INR 1.75L.
Once the amount is collected, the solar panel will be procured by Solar Energy Solutions ( a firm) and will be supplied to the school. The solar panels will need to be installed by professionals, who will ensure that they are properly connected to the school's electrical system and that they are functioning correctly. The maintenance of this will also be taken care of by the team.
Overall, this solution will help the rural school in Murbad to overcome their electricity problem and provide a reliable source of electricity for their appliances. It will also help to reduce their dependence on non-renewable sources of energy, which is better for the environment.
IMAGES OF THE SCHOOL:
My name is AANSHIKHA LOHIA. I am 16 years old and a Grade 11 student at the Oberoi International School, Mumbai.
I am running this crowdfunding campaign to transform the Zilla Parishad Dhasaiwadi School located in Murbad, Thane.
The school is struggling to provide a conducive learning environment for the students because electricity is not accessible and the power supply is irregular there.
If this issue persists, it may hinder the academic progress of the students and ultimately affect their future prospects. We aim to install solar panels which cost 1.75L to solve this problem through our initiative 'Project Ujwal Shiksha'.
Through this campaign, we aim to provide a better school environment to the students and teachers. This will in turn help the students to get educated, and reach their potential on par with private school students.
Support this campaign and together let's impact their education.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept and is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations and ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding.
