One of the remotest regions in East India, Sundarbans, over 65% of the households use toxic kerosene lamps for their lighting needs. Noxious fumes from the lamps and burning firewood claim a life every 20 seconds as a result of early childhood pneumonia, emphysema, cataracts, lung cancer, bronchitis which is more than the lives claimed by malaria and tuberculosis.

    

 

 This holiday season,we, Seth and Erin are raising funds for the Sundarbans region of India.This is one of the small steps we've taken to bring awareness among our friends and family. Thanks to Milaap.org we've got an opportunity to give back to the society by lending as little as $25. 

Join us in bringing lights into the lives of rural communities that have  never seen a light bulb in their lives!  Lets light up their lives!!The loans raised in this campaign will be used to install solar lamps and smokeless cookstoves to bring light and clean air into lives of poor rural communities in Sundarbans, West Bengal, India.

Milaap believes in giving people a hand up - which is why, the contributions are given out as loans, rather than one-time donations. This means that 100% of your contributions come back to you in twelve months. Once the money comes back to you, you can choose to fund the same amount to another borrower, thereby multiplying your impact.

Why I chose Milaap?

Milaap is a social enterprise that enables people around the world to give a loan to the working poor in India. Milaap's loans are aimed towards providing people with access to basic essentials like clean drinking water, sanitation, renewable energy, vocational training and enterprise development.

What is impressing to me the most is the fact that 100% of your contribution goes as loans and you know exactly who is benefitting from your contribution.
