Savitha Sridharan states, “Orora Global, Inc. has leveraged state-of-the-art technology to develop a suite of products--all solar powered, to present impoverished individuals and communities with energy solutions. Our programs are designed to create more opportunities for women in clean energy and in building innovative, renewable solutions which provide a holistic and a long-term approach to community development. My commitment focuses on empowering women from rural communities with soft skills, helping them to become leaders within their communities. Working in remote towns on such a fundamental issue as providing electricity, and hence, empowerment to women, echoes with my belief of making a difference. We have one dream for them--to create a safe environment for families and help the homeless communities to thrive in these regions by building off-grid homes with solar power. The communities
learn the skill of building homes through community
participatory design and installing solar products, which
can provide people with means for economic livelihoods, thereby creating truly
sustainable communities. A low-cost solar solution that helps power a home in a
rural community is the aim of Orora Global. Our target is to train our
enterprising women in rural India to be community leaders in several aspects of
solar to be ready for lighting up their own communities”.-Kris
