A remote village in West Bengal had never seen light. Then this organization came and gave the villagers a life that they had only dreamed of. Watch the amazing video of what happens next.
Ayodhya Hills in West Bengal had never seen electricity. The Santhal tribe there always lived in darkness and did not know if the situation would ever change.
The village has no proper road connectivity to the cities and it takes at least two to three hours even to reach a nearby hospital in case of emergencies.
If anyone ever visits the much ignored village, the villagers assume them to be journalists who will bring change in their poor state. Their eyes brighten up with hope but nothing ever changed so far.
And then Milaap .org went to the village, stayed there and did what the villagers had only dreamt of.
They not only brought light in the dark lives but changed the atmosphere of the community through their simple intervention.
The video was created by Ruchir Saraf and first published by Milaap here.
