About Organization

TEACH FOR GREEN is a social enterprise which is working relentlessly to promote the importance of Green Energy for a sustainable environment through various activities in the field of training and skill development across entire India. It aims at creating awareness about green energy and developing entrepreneurship through DIY (Do It Yourself) approach.

Our aim to focus these problems which are burning issues of today need to take attenation.

1.

Still in India, more than 250 million people still living their lives without electricity and more than 400 million people don't have access clean cooking facilities.

2.

Our conventional energy sources are going to end nearly 50-60 years in future, whereas the rate of requirement of energy is going to increase day by day. If we do not find an alternative source, how will we develop further?

3.

It is predicted that earth's average temperature is going to increase every year by 1 degree Celsius. May 2016 was measured as hottest month in this whole era as temperature touched 51 degree Celsius. If this continues, one day life will cease to exist on earth.

4.

To achieve sustainability, rate of generation and utilisation of energy should be same. Green energy sources are such a sustainable source as harvested energy is utilizes within next 12-36 hours and can even save. Germany and Portugal are countries fulfill its energy requirement completely by renewable.

What We Do

Teach for Green is a social enterprise which is working relentlessly to promote the importance of Green Energy for a sustainable environment through various activities in the field of training and skill development across entire India.

"In our innovation, we are not only talking about green energy through comprehensive and interactive modules but also doing circuit designing and associated activities using very simple components. We talk about every important thing and give a chance to a person to learn by themselves and by designing their module using recyclable materials from their household and surrounding. We provide them awareness about prospects of both conventional energy and green energy and enable them to choose the better one. Our organisation is working relentlessly to promote the importance of Green Energy for a sustainable environment through various activities in the field of training and skill development across  India. We have designed multiple programs, workshops, and modules for both rural and urban communities giving them perspectives on different scenarios regarding Conventional Energy, Green Energy, Waste Management, BioGas, Vermin Compost by hands-on activities. At the end of the program, they have a physical design which they can use in their household. When a person or kid develops something using his creativity and understanding, it gives lots of confidence to him/her.  It also helps us reach out to more people and solve their problems."

Our History

Mr. Ajay Kumar is the Founder and Director of Teach For Green. For last Six Years Ajay has been involved in research and has gained thorough knowledge in the concept of green energy. He worked on fabrication of solar thin films, different ways to produce bio algae fuel & environmental friendly uses of fly ashes, he presented his works on various conferences. He found that in India there is lag between research & field implementation, so later he was a part of the SBI Youth for India fellowship program and there he realized the problem faced by rural people due to non-availability of resources. It was at this time when he came up with the idea of designing different affordable designs on green energy like decentralized solar lighting system, solar mobile irrigation pump and improve Chula with the help of waste materials. Then he joined India Fellow and worked in research & Innovation solar smart grids, he found that in still people both rural & urban not accepted & adapted green energy solutions in household level so A medium was needed to achieve this and Teach For Green was established. His aim is to reach to every child of India to create the awareness about green energy not only theoretically but also Do It Yourself activities and let the youth of the country lead this shift towards the Green Energy.
The road so far
Teach For Green has conducted various short and long duration workshops in the states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan & Andhra Pradesh till date. The growing response to these workshops has been immensely inspiring.
We, through our interactions, have been able to unlock the creative aspects of brains of rural child, allowing him to think for himself and be confident to decide and do what he/she believes in. We have managed to spark curiosity among the community people to ask about the technical aspects that they are unable to grasp thus pushing them slowly to be at par with the national level. There also has been a sense of awareness towards importance of education and skill-development in rural community making them capable of bringing a positive change to their lives and lifestyles.
Nothing gives us much satisfaction than looking at the jovial face of a rural child when he/she proudly declares being capable of assembling and designing solar lamps and other circuits or a rural youth when he is capable of providing electricity to his house as well as to adjoining houses.

Our Vision

Enabling individuals & communities to rely completely on Green energy sources, promoting sustainable living practices integrated with values and ethics of caring for nature and the world around us.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to nurture imagination, instill curiosity, incept innovation, and bolster confidence in young minds with the motto of DIY to enhance their leadership potential towards maintaining sustainable relation with the natural environment.
