Nagendra's story

Nagendra is Managing Director of Navachetana Enterprises, an organization working towards bringing essential products to poor rural communities and promoting rural development. He has been engaged in the field of poverty alleviation for over 20 years and was inspired to form Navachetana Foundation in 1999, under which Navachetana Enterprises operates. Through this organization, he has been working in five districts in Rural Karnataka with 22,000 women (as part of Self Helf groups). By introducing Barefoot Solar Products to these village women, Nagendra can bring power to households that suffer from unreliable or poor grid supply. These women can also go on to earn a livelihood by distributing Barefoot products within their community.
