Project Details

This is an exciting opportunity for the right interns to have a massive social impact in India. It is NOT your standard internship. It is a mixture of social development and managerial skills where you will be required to use your analytical and problem-solving skills to analyse the difficulties and list out the lack of opportunities of a under developed village in rural India and thereafter planning out the solutions.

The purpose of the project is to make the village more self-reliant, developed and sustainable by making and providing Bio-Filters, Solar Lanterns, Bio-Toilets, and Drought Relief measures along with other solutions in line with the honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi’s vision to make India’s rural areas more developed.
