The Story

Power a Village is a non-profit organization that provides renewable electricity to rural villages in Nepal. We have successfully powered two villages in the last year, including the Hardeni Village and the Sorung Village. A video of Sorung villager reactions to their newly installed solar panels is posted above.

Power a Village is a great way to help out people in Nepal. We keep cost of operation very lean, by working with manufacturers, construction workers, and a Power a Village team member directly in Nepal. This means that we save tens of thousands of donor dollars by cutting out airfare costs. Your dollars go directly to equipment wholesalers, and to Nepal natives with the know-how to install this equipment.

We also work directly with villagers, helping them set up committees to manage the electrical systems, and giving them the knowledge to fix things when they go wrong.

We are having a fundraising event called "Taste of the Himalayas" on April 5th on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln City Campus. At this event we will be raising money to power the Mayankhu Village, an estimated cost of around $6,000. If you cannot attend, consider donating through this page. Electricity is a basic technology that can make a huge difference in other people's lives!
