The Story

The village is called Sorung-8 (Udaypur district). The village has a river called Sorung Chabise river, which will be utilized to produce clean and renewable energy through a picohydro project utilizing a hydroelectric generator (2kW). For other villages info: visit Gallery at right of the page.

Earlier this summer, Power a Village successfully completed the Hardeni village project, which is currently providing electricty to 27 households(Population of 160). To raise funds for the Hardeni Village, students learned and performed the 'Sherpa Dance' at University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Nepal Nite 2070. ( :)

Now, we are hoping to power another three villages and build water mill which will be beneficial for all the villages. Even the smallest financial contribution will help to provide clean light and renewable energy, to replace harmful kerosene lamps in many people's homes. This will not only promote good health, but also lower living expenses by reducing the need for kerosene. 

Thank you so much for your support! (Dhanyabad)
