"Empowering the individual means empowering the nation. And empowerment is best served through rapid economic growth with rapid social change." Well said by former Prime Minister of India MR. Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
A nations growth can be easily predicted by the kind of education provided to the individuals of the country. Suzlon Foundation of Suzlon Energy Ltd. is a wind turbine supplier based in Pune, being a leader in rural development CSR projects found that quality education is still a challenge for schools as they had poor infrastructure.
We still face challenges in the field of education. We have a strong network of 1.2 million schools in India. Some schools lack basic necessities like benches. Students face problems like back ache, neck ache due to long hours of sitting on floor with bad posture. Some students don’t even have school bags to carry books. These problems continue for after school hours where children don’t have continuous electricity at home. Observing these problems, Suzlon Foundation felt that there needs to be a way to solve these problems.
Ennoble Social Innovations had come up with its products YELO BAG and YELO BAG SOFT which is easy to carry school bag and has a feature to convert into a writing desk. These bags could be used as a regular school bag which are light-weight but strong and also be used as desk. Ennoble Social Innovations also has a solar powered study lamp that has a 6-hour battery life. The solar charge takes about 2-3 hours to fully charge.
These products were a perfect fit for the solution to the problems Suzlon Foundation wanted to solve in Telangana. Suzlon Foundation collaborated with Ennoble Social Innovations under their CSR initiative to provide these inventions in a few schools in Telangana. The students now have a durable beautiful multi utility school bag and a solar powered study lamp to study at home after school hours. Few pictures of the products are shared in this article.
A heartfelt thanks to Ms. Jasmine (CSR Head Suzlon Foundation) and NavaYouth Organization for taking up the initiative. These YELO BAGS not only brought smiles and happiness for the students but will also help them have a healthy education for many years to come.
Ennoble and its partners stands for the right of children to get better and convenient education.
