          Description

          75 percent of the 1.1 million pollution-related deaths that took place at India in 2015 took place in rural areas. In fact, 25% of pollution-related deaths in the country are due to common practice of domestic burning of cow dung. As of 2016, 64% of India’s rural population used solid fuel for cooking indoors. Another driver for air pollution crisis in rural areas is the practice of burning agricultural stubble and disposing the waste. The study determined that this practice is responsible for 66,000 pollution-related deaths every year as burning contributes to rise of  temperature  due to release of green-house gases. The above scenario has not been addressed at any level since the main focus was on vehicles and industries. In order to overcome this, the change should start from the grass root level. It is always the village and women who drive these things.

           

          Our approach is to make women technologically fit and managerially efficient so that she can drive innovation to achieve sustainable development goals with major focus on climate change and generating affordable and clean energy which also boosts the women contribution to nation's economy. In order to implement this, we as a start-up would like to work with “self-help groups” and provide them with basic skills to establish and operate industries on equity basis which can generate bio fuels by managing the waste and animal stubble to make biofuels which can be used by the people for cooking, energy generation and lubrication for vehicles there by conserving the natural resources. The women in self-help groups and unemployed youth girls will be mentored and trained by educated women to maintain the environmental standards of the village and the equity shares for the village depends on their contribution to environment. In order to monitor the changes and the contributions to environment we use technologies like Internet of things which are used to collect data from sensors(temperature and air quality) and machine learning Algorithms which can be used to analyse data on the go and reward them on basis of contributions to the climate change. The educated and unemployed youth girls can be given vocational training in order to handle the jobs involving technologies.
