I have seen people talk about change. Talk about how an idea at its best can sensitize an entire community. How an Idea if nurtured with proper resources and implementation can drive away the hindrances of development and transcend individuals into much aware and responsible community. How an idea can bring about the supremely desired change.

I have always seen people talk about that change, but it was the first time I was witnessing one. I was part of “Teach for Green” on their Green Energy Workshop program in Alamnagar village, Madhepura, Bihar. The project involved providing awareness and to village children about Environment and Energy crisis and to teach them in designing affordable green energy models such as Solar Lamps, Torches, Mobile Chargers, and Micro Biogas plants using Recyclable waste materials.

Needless to say, it was the first time that rural students of the 10th-12th standard were provided with such an opportunity, and they grabbed it with arms wide open. It was visible in their demeanor, level of enthusiasm and products they created. The peculiar thing that appealed me the most was the responses of parents, guardians, and village administrators ranging from “Village Mukhiya” to “Block Development Officer.” Although the workshop was meant for students, all the people above, through their active and inactive presence, were immensely inspired by our cause. During post-workshop discussions, many parents expressed their desire of learning Circuit designing repair & maintenance to utilize these skills for their sustainability. Also, they wanted more and more children from their community to attend such training to improve their prospects. Very soon, other Mukhiyas from nearby villages, who witnessed our program wanted to conduct these workshops in their village. They have understood the importance and potential of Green Energy and the improvement it can make and wanted to spread it to their locality.

We were overwhelmed by the sensitization that we have created through our Do-It-Yourself training and Green Energy awareness program. It felt like being part of the inception of a seed of change that will slowly germinate and grow across the rural and urban communities, bringing the much talked about change.
