Energy Voluntourism

Energy Voluntourism

Many villages in Nepal are deprived from accessible sources of energy. HV organizes energy voluntourism programs to help these villages establish access to energy sources. Himalayan Power Trek-Patale in 2011 is one example for energy voluntourism in which students raised funds to help purchase the equipment needed to provide energy to a whole village. Students trekked 12 days to reach and install solar LED panels in Patale village, giving every household access to solar energy.
