A modest contribution to a better world

November 28, 2016

Our company Withindia Building Solutions is an ordinary company, just like yours. There are times when our focus shifts to something else beyond commercial activities, and we start working on a great project. This project is the Mr. Keepi Foundation.

What do we want to achieve with the Mr. Keepi Foundation?

Main objective for the Mr. Keepi Foundation is to contribute to a sustainable development of the countryside of India. However, we know development is a broad subject, and therefore we focus on inventing and applying smart solar power solutions and education programs for children.

We have developed three down-to-earth programs, in which we contribute to better life for children and their parents in India. It consists of the following programs:

  • Light for Education
  • Mr. Keepi Solar Fund
  • Smart Classroom

To whom are you concerned about?

We have experienced that it is hard to have an idea about how people live on the countryside in India. Hence we wanted to visualize and bring the world of Mr. Keepi closer to you. An image tells so much more than words. Therefore we created a photo album. The photos in this album will tell you a story about the state of Rajasthan, in particular the villages we work in. Hopefully you will get inspired, just like us.

The album is 100,- Euro. Half part of the revenue will be invested in the Light for Education program of Mr. Keepi.

What is our contribution until now?

Well, since 2014 till the first of October this year we have provided in total 28 schools and 1071 students a mobile solar cell light. Not only used by the children, but very useful for all family members!

Besides this initiative 273 families were able to buy a Solar Home System as they used our micro credit system (Mr. Keepi Solar Finance Fund).
The children in those families who were using our lights were performing better at school in comparison to students who were using old kerosene lights. A first contribution to a better life.

Forecast 2017

We will continue with our efforts the coming year, we want to give the opportunity to another 1000 students to participate in the Light for Education program. The first gift is already collected: Kids4Kids run by way of Three Lions Clubs in the city of Voorburg-Leidschendam (The Netherlands). In addition we really need your help to evolve this project!
