On 10th April 2010, Manab Jamin have received 5 solar light from Mukti for Social Development, USA, for Our Future Generation Farmer Group members who are mainly scheduled caste and scheduled tribe children from BPL families. The children would use these solar lights in their school to study in the evening at Supur Manab Jamin Shishu Kendra. Children and their family members were very pleased to utilize the solar light. The children were really excited by these lights as solar lights do not pollute nature and effect their health as kerosene does (most of the children are involved in ecological movement).
