Manipal : SELCO Foundation, an organization depoloying clean energy solutions for alleviating poverty in rural areas, in partnership with Bharathiya Vikas Trust plans to establish a world class training centre at Manipal.



Addressing to media persons at BVT campus here on Monday, 11th June, Dr. Harish Hande, CEO, SELCO Foundation said that SELCO has taken over the administrative control of Bharathiya Vikas Trust, an organization working to promote education and training in bringing social-economic changes especially in rural India. The partnership plans to create a world class innovation and training centre in Manipal which will have access to not only youngsters across the country but across the world.

This facility will have a very close relationship with Manipal University, the Medical college, Management school and related agriculture universities in the State. The goal of the program is in the next couple of years SELCO foundation will invest at least one to two crores in developing the infrastructure to make it happen. Students of all ages from kindergarten to people who are doing Phd are welcome to utilize the resources and services to enhance their knowledge.


He said that as a country, we are looking at sustainable energy. We still have 60 crore population who either do not have energy or lack access to energy. Because they lack access to energy, their livelihoods in agriculture or in regular blacksmith, sewing machine etc., have problem of increasing their livelihoods to get out of poverty. But for that, a lot of innovations need to be done. The youngsters across the country and the world residing in rural areas do not have a chance to actually go to a high-class training centre. The training centre ensures that this gap is bridged, Harish Hande said.

A memorandum of understanding was exchanged by Dr. Harish Hande and Ashok Pai during the occasion in regard to development of various projects.

Speaking about, Ashok Pai one of the trustee of BVT said that we are happy to extend utmost support to SELCO in building the BVT, if needed additional space will be provided by us in order to provide employment to the unemployed youths through electricity.

K M Udupa, Managing trustee of BVT was present.
