28 year old Site Wadeka, with her two children, in her home that is now lit with a solar lamp, in the tribal village of Tinginapu. She makes brooms which are sold locally. The Orissa Tribal Empowerment and Livelihoods Programme (OTELP) is an organisation funded by DFID (Department for International Development) and run with the state government of Orissa. The project took four women from the remote tribal village of Tinginapu and trained them in Solar Powered Engineering, and installed Solar lighting in their village which had not seen electricity for over 15 years. The Orissa Tribal Women's Barefoot Solar Engineers Association has now got a contract to build 3,000 solar-powered lanterns for schools and other institutions and is training other people in the community.
