Hi,

Hope you are doing well! Here are a few highlights from an 'eventful' October that we had here at Rang De.

The solar loans went live on RangDe.org in October. Under this new initiative,
we are partnering with the SELCO Foundation and the Kotra Adivasi Sansthan to provide low-cost finance and help families set up individual solar units in their homes. You can read more about solar loans and the project in Kotra, Rajasthan here. You can also invest in solar loans here 
 
In the remote, tribal region of Kotra in Rajasthan, Rang De's solar loans are helping families install solar units in their houses and gain access to electricity

At Rang De, we are fortunate to have some wonderful social investors who believe in our cause and support our work in various ways. Ramakrishnan Krishnan or 'Bantering Ram', is one such person. Ram was gracious enough to donate part of proceeds from the latest edition of Unscene - the monthly metal music event that he organizes in Bangalore - to RangDe.org and helped raise awareness about our cause. You can read more about Unscene & Rang De here. 
Rang De was one of the partners of 'Unscene Music' in Bengaluru. Part of the proceeds from the event will help Rang De in its mission of fighting poverty

Early in October, a few of our social investors accompanied us on a field visit to the Just Change Producer Company in Gudalur, Tamil Nadu. During the visit, we had a great and informative session with the founders of Just Change and even met with the Adivasis in Gudalur that Just Change and Rang De support. You can read more about the field trip here.

Midway through October, we made our way to Pune and Mumbai to meet our social investor community in the two cities, updating them about the work at Rang De over hot, piping cups of coffee. Here is an update from two evenings of Coffee Conversations with Rang De

We have a few interesting events scheduled for this month and the next. Please check out our social media pages or write an email to empathy@rangde.org to know more about how can participate. 

That's all from our side for now. Hope you have a great month ahead!
