ICT systems bolster farm livelihoods and ease migrant workers connect to their families, renewable energy powers off-the-grid Adivasi habitations

Village-level information-communication systems reached weather forecast and crop advisory to farmers in remote villages, aided widespread dissemination of multimedia materials for COVID awareness, and helped migrant workers speak to their families. We trained a local cadre of technicians and operators to ensure regular preventive and general maintenance of solar pumping systems and the mini-grids in the villages. We started the preparatory work for the revival of a micro hydro project and used solar water-pumping solutions to augment and revive water supply systems.
