An open source not-for-profit enterprise creating solutions linking sustainable energy to poverty eradication across urban, rural and tribal areas
SELCO Foundation envisions a socially sustainable society: we seek to create avenues for asset building, enhancement in quality of life and wealth creation that will uplift deprived sections of society through sustainable development solutions.
SELCO Foundation was officially registered on 5th October, 2010 as a public charitable trust, with the mission to:
1. Systematically identify diverse needs of underserved communities, understand and define the role of sustainability and energy in these communities.
2. Create and support innovative and sustainable solutions that positively impact well-being, education and livelihoods and work towards the alleviation of poverty.
3. Foster ecosystem development in the social sector through holistic thought processes in technology, finance, entrepreneurship and policy.
A little about us: SELCO Foundation is an open source, not for profit organization that engages in field-based R&D and ecosystem building for deployment of clean energy solutions that alleviate poverty in tribal, rural and urban poor areas. The organization works closely with practitioners in the social sector, energy entrepreneurs and partners from various developmental sectors. www.selcofoundation.org
