Anusheela Saha (2016 I Inspire Young Trailblazer Awardee) came up with the idea of The #LightBag – A school bag – with solar panels and LED lights! The bag can turn to a study lamp at night and can charge itself during the day in just 2 hours.
It’s just a simple idea and it’s already changing 1000s of lives.
Biz Divas Foundation supports Sahpathi in its quest to address learning deficiencies among underprivileged children of Silokhra, an urban village in Gurgaon.
Electricity is a major problem in most Indian villages and across the world due to which many children are forced to drop their dream for education. But this simple idea is proving a boom for these underprivileged children that they can continue their studies even after sunset in the absence of electricity.
We can spread the news and help more people and organizations to contribute for the bright future of these underprivileged children. Organizations can undertake it as a part of their CSR.

The cost involved in making one bag, from start to finish is Rs. 1500, including the cost of the solar panel and LED lights.
