    In India, 89% of the nation’s rural population lives in households that lacks toilets. This absence of proper sanitation presents public health challenges, and affects Indian women disproportionately. Rural women have to go to the extent of using unhygienic substances such as old rags and leaves which has led to poor menstrual hygiene and reproductive diseases.

    An estimated 8.1 million children are out of school, from which 27% children dropout between Class 1st and 5th, 41% before reaching Class 8th, and 49% before reaching Class 10th. Dharma Life has partnered with local governments and private schools in villages with a mission to educate children on a large scale, and spread awareness about clean energy solutions such as benefits of using a solar lantern over a kerosene lantern.
