Description

A short video to describe some of the work we have been doing with remote communities in Nepal. In this video, we see the effects of our installation of biogas systems, with our partner organisation BSP Nepal. The biogas generation has benefitted schools, health centres, income generating schemes and households, which are no longer filled with polluting smoke from wood or kerosene. Because women and children are no longer exposed to harmful fumes, their life expectancy is increasing, and because the no longer have to risk their lives collecting firewood, and spend long periods of the day finding and carrying fuel, youngsters can spend more time safe in school, while women are able to work improving incomes, or look after their families. The project also significantly reduces carbon emmissions. For more information regarding our work in South Asia, visit us at http://www.renewable-world.org/our-work/programmes/south-asia.
