Jawhar, India

Background

EWB-UMCP started their partnership with the Divya School for Children with Disabilities in January 2014. This school provides primary level education to blind, deaf and mentally challenged students from the local Adivasi (tribal) population. Their recently built school campus depends on local electricity. Unfortunately, electricity is unreliable and the students have to endure hours on end without electricity. The EWB-UMCP chapter is currently planning its first assessment trip to evaluate this energy problem, discuss potential solutions, and build relationships with the community.
