RGVN had been working on providing low cost drinking water, sanitary latrine and solar illumination for the poor people. Funding for such programmes have been forthcoming from CSR initiatives of various corporation and even individuals. RGVN has also been spending a part of its funds on these projects. Recently, the three ideas have been clubbed under RGVN DSL Initiative (Drinking water, Sanitation & Solar lighting). Some of the funders for these initiatives are IFCI Ltd., McLeod Russel, Amalgamated Plantations Pvt. Ltd and HCCBPL .
A small fund for fast-tracking of the solar initiatives has been launched on a pilot basis. Donors have contributed to the fund on being approached by RGVN. RGVN seeks the help of other donors to light the homes of the poor students & disadvantaged people.
