Solar Skill Training

Providing Economic Independence & Climate Resilience

Economic Empowerment



The Challenge

In an ever changing world where climate is becoming more challenging, women and their communities are left with little resources to adapt to these adversities. By equipping these women with essential expertise, we believe they can serve as catalysts for the increased adoption and maintenance of solar power systems.

The Solution

The Desai Foundation’s Solar Skill Training initiative aims to provide solar setup and maintenance skills to rural women, promoting economic independence and enhancing climate resilience. This program is an extension of the Foundation’s successful history in vocational skill training. The primary goal is to offer specialized training in solar system setup and maintenance to enable women to become key contributors to sustainable development in their communities.

The Lasting Impact

The Desai Foundation’s Solar Skill Training initiative is designed to empower women with skills that not only align with the evolving demands of the green economy but also strengthen their resilience in the face of climate adversities. This will make them better prepared to adapt to environmental changes, enhance their livelihoods through sustainable income generation, and enable active participation in sustainable development efforts that benefit their communities and the environment.

Join Our Initiative

Supporting the Solar Skill Training program can have a profound impact on empowering women in rural India. Your involvement can help expand this initiative, creating more opportunities for sustainable livelihoods and community development.

    Bihar Goyal, a 30-year-old from Lonsara Khurd village in Madhya Pradesh, is supporting his family through daily-wage farm labor. The Desai Foundation’s help desk camp in his village provided valuable assistance: PAN cards, Ayushman cards, and e-Shramik cards.

    Bihar registered for a labor card, but an accident with a tractor left him with a severe leg injury. His labor card provided instant relief of Rs. 2 Lakhs and enrollment in the Economic Benefit Scheme, offering Rs. 1,000 per month. He’s grateful for the Desai Foundation’s Heroes for Humanity program, benefiting from the housing scheme associated with the labor card. Bihar is thankful for the Desai Foundation’s unwavering support.
