Blind People's Association (India), is a professional organization established in the year 1950 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, which believes in providing equal opportunities to all categories of people with disabilities. Consistent with the philosophy, it works for providing education, employment opportunities, equal rights and quality life for person with disabilities. BPA has received a number of awards for its service to help blind and mentally ill people.
With the idea of providing clean and safe energy to Blind People's Association and promoting environmental sustainability, Wagh Bakri Tea Group backed BPA with the financial support for installation of solar panels at one of their building.
Solar is a safe alternative which can replace current fossil fuels like coal and gas for generation of electricity that produce air, water, and land pollution. World Wildlife Fund (WWF), noted that electricity generation from fossil fuels causes pollution of air leading to acid rain, damaged forest areas, and affected agricultural production leading to loss of billions of dollars worldwide. Use of solar energy will help eliminate these unsafe, unclean consequences from using conventional fossil fuels. Solar is Clean and Safe and helps in combating Climate Change.
