With the vision of building safer and happy villages, Hyundai Steel in association with World Vision India have announced that it has mutually installed 101 Solar Street Lights across four villages in the Sriperumbudur panchayat in Tamil Nadu.

This initiative is part of the Happy Safe Village Project, Tamil Nadu which aims at protection and safety to the communities in these villages. This Solar Street Lamps will help to shrink the carbon footprint. 60 volunteers from several universities across the Republic of Korea were involved in planning the villages for the solar lamp installation process.

Speaking at the inauguration, Chae Bong Suk, President- Hyundai Steel India said, “At Hyundai, we are guided by the philosophy to pursue social, economic and ecological development for our planet. More than 1.3 billion people in the world do not have access to electricity. After the sun sets, the common areas in the villages are plunged into darkness, and people find it unsafe to step outside their homes. To overcome this, we came up with the initiative of installing solar streetlights in the villages.

“We thank the elected representatives of the four villages for extending their support in the installation of the solar street lamps,” said Sony Thomas, Director- Resource Management, World Vision India. He further added that “By providing these solar-powered lights, we are bringing clean, efficient, renewable, and affordable illumination to the rural areas, thereby making a positive impact”.

The involvement includes improving the infrastructure in the government schools, improving the health-seeking behavior among villagers and offering an environment for children to protect them from pollution, harm, and accidents.
