Namma Veedu

We are Building a Home for human potential. VIDHYARANYA FOUNDATION develop, refine and share sustainable affordable homes not only provide a fundamental of human, they unleash unimaginable human potential to shape a future of gender parity, climate resilience, clean water and air, renewable energy and socio-economic justice. We do this because affordable homes not only provide a fun. The construction industry is highly resource and energy intensive sector in India.

More than two out of every five Indians are below the poverty line. They are either homeless or live in a kaccha homes. The tribal community faces lot of struggling in day to day life. Vidhyaranya are a working experience of an sustainable community based on living in harmony with Mother Earth and our objective is to find balance of one’s physical and spiritual needs with a comfortable lifestyle, leaving behind a low carbon footprint for future generations.

“Shelter is one of humanity’s most basic needs.”

Vidhyaranya has unique project for homeless i.e. "Namma Veedu" an affordable sustainable homes that will improve the lives of the underserved communities. Namma Veedu is adopted participatory approach while constructing house with Compressed Stablized Earth Block.

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy, also referred to as ‘alternative energy’, is energy generated from a natural source that is not depleted when used, such as wind or solar power. Renewable energy has gained popularity as it does not harm the environment.

  1. Solar: Solar energy is a sustainable form of renewable energy from the sun, which can be used to generate electricity and heat. Electricity is generated using photovoltaic panels. Solar thermal panels, normally containing a liquid, capture heat from the sun
  2. Wind: Wind energy is harnessed using wind turbines, located on or off shore. Wind turns the blades of a turbine, which then turn a generator to make electricity. One large turbine can power roughly 3000 homes
  3. Biogas: Biogas generated from cow dung is considered a form of renewable energy and offers a clean and smokeless cooking solution to rural households. Biogas will give the beneficeiary families a better and healthier lifestyle through clean and fast cooking for many years. Biogas energy creates socio-economic benefits to the communities, but also significantly contributes to the fight against climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Vidhyaranya implements renewable green energy to the under privileged community for cooking, agriculture and home for their needs.

Water Conservation

Water is one of the basic resources needed to sustain plant and animal life and ultimately human existence. Judicious use of this resource should be the concern of all people. Watershed is the geographical area from which the entire surface run-off originating due to the rainfall coverage flows through the existing drainage system towards a common outlet Let us say, it is a small catchment area in which the excess water of that particular region resulting from run-off is conserved either by check darns or through percolation ponds.
