The team of the Litre of Light visited many slum areas and surveyed the most common problems in the city Dehradun. Obviously they listed many problems but the most common ones were water, light and hygienic conditions. So to make their conditions better we thought to innovate and make a product which could light up homes easily. So we took up the global initiative of litre of light and installed water filled bottles on the roof of peoples' houses. This turned out to be a bad idea because Dehradun being a monsoon rich city the leaks in the roofs were very common despite making it waterproof. So we innovated in our designs and came up with a powerful compact lantern and started installing them too. We also continued our rooftop designs having solar panel and a bulb with pvc pipe in the water.
Now with the help of some science institutions we are also working on a street light bulbs which turn on automatically when it senses no light. So we basically need funds to continue installing those two models and for the research and development of the next model.
The cost of each bulbs are 250 each and the street light cost is yet to be determined but with mass fund we can cut down the cost of production and install more lights of people in Dehradun and mussorie. Statistically saying the survey we conducted showed that there are still some 10000 families without lights using kerosene lamps and by this initiative we reduce fuel emissions and reduce plastic in environment and hence lighting up the homes of economically challenged
