SKDRDP won an Ashden International Award in 2012.
Shri Kshethra Dharmasthala Rural Development Project (SKDRDP) promotes development through a network of self-help-groups which meet weekly in rural Karnataka. The programme helps group members to plan their household needs, save money, and gradually take out affordable loans for domestic and agricultural needs. SKDRDP recognises the many benefits of access to electricity and clean cooking, so a key part of its programme is to provide information and loans for renewable energy systems, in particular solar homes systems and biogas plants.
