Bengaluru-based NGO, the Happy Light Project Foundation (HLPF), is lighting up the lives of residents of Gotiguda, a small village  in Odisha’s Raygada district.

These villagers, who depend on Dokhra metal crafts for their livelihood, were living without electricity and were therefore unable to fashion enough products to make ends meet.

Founded by Calvin Pinto, Philip Thomas and M Kishan, with backgrounds in commerce mostly, the NGO set up a crowdfunding project on October 15, 2016 to bring electricity to Gotiguda.
