THE STORY:

EMPOWERED BY LIGHT FOUNDATION wrote -

Join us in bringing power to the protectors of Chitwan National Park and empowering women entrepreneurs.

We’re working to bring solar to the protectors of Chitwan National Park, Nepal’s first National Park, which is home to one of the last populations of single-horned Asiatic rhinoceros and is also one of the last refuges of the Bengal Tiger.

The park is the last surviving example of the natural ecosystems of the Terai region and covers subtropical lowland, wedged between two east-west river valleys at the base of the Siwalik mountain range of the outer Himalayas. In 1996, an area of 75,000 hectares consisting of forests and private lands and surrounding the park was declared a buffer zone.

This project will benefit the local communities living in the buffer zone of Chitwan’s National Park. We will provide solar installations to support conservation efforts and the protectors of this park while supporting a women-led solar distribution company: Empower Generation. Empower Generation provides income-generating opportunities to local buffer zone communities and clean energy products so that families can avoid using the natural resources from the park.

Our project will build on the the work of Rebuild With Sun, which focused on emergency disaster relief. In this second phase, we’re continuing our work to rebuild a clean energy future with one of our incredible Nepali nonprofit collaborators and supporting conservation efforts to protect a global treasure.
